I found this bowl in an antique shop this weekend and knew it belonged in my photo studio holding small fruits. The only trouble was the shop owner wanted to sell a matching set of 8 bowls together--for a crazy price. No, I didn't want eight, I wanted one.
So I found Fred. He has a way to getting shopkeepers to do what I want in a way that they want to do it. It's a mystery to me.
All I know is I got one bowl with a small crack for $5 and I am very happy. The shop owner was too. Go figure!
