I suppose it is a mixing bowl, technically, but I’ve always considered it a versatile piece of art. Over the thirty-some years I’ve enjoyed it, I’ve used it in more ways than I could ever remember, but I never used it in the kitchen. It has held fruit, blown glass balls, Christmas ornaments, pinecones, and most anything else you might imagine.

Worth repeating: It is 14 ¼” in diameter and weighs exactly 13 lbs. There is no damage, although it could likely use a good bath.

There is a maker’s mark on the bottom, but it is one of those marks that only someone like NASA could read . . . very faint. If you have followed along with me for the almost 15 years I’ve been diddling around on , you already know that pottery is not an area in which I have even an inkling of expertise. My best guess is “Bauer,” but that is just a guess.

We were living in Hoboken, New Jersey back in the early 1980s. For some reason I had to fly to Los Angeles, and I ended up getting stuck there over a weekend, something unplanned, which is usually when the best stuff happens. It was at least a year or so before Nicklaus won The Masters in ’86.

It’s funny what one remembers – events quickly forgotten unless punctuated by an unusual experience. I remember asking someone at the hotel if there were any flea markets in the area. She asked if I’d ever been to the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena. I had not, so I hopped in my little rental car and found it with no trouble.

I’d been to larger markets, but the variety of jumble was impressive. A few yards from the entrance, I spotted this bowl, upside-down on a blanket surrounded by easily forgotten trinkets. I knew it was to be mine, and I also had sense enough to foresee the hassles involved – being a million miles from home – a rental car to return – and two plane changes the following Tuesday.

That’ll have to do for “provenance.”

I carried it on my lap. At one point, a flight attendant pushing a drinks cart stopped at my seat, glanced at the bowl and asked if I needed a refill. Like I said: Funny what one remembers.

More images and commentary continue below my three "Prime Directives:"
1st: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and rarely do I ask for an opening offer of more than $9.00 (sometimes even less).
2nd: I never end sales early.
3rd: I don’t usually clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. I push enough dust aside to expose any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun.

NO DISAPPOINTMENTS

GOOD LUCK
