I got this bowl to showcase my husband's matchbook collection. It's a nice, heavyweight bowl. The wavy-ness lower down on the bowl is nice - a subtle pattern. The area around the rim is more jagged-smooth. It has the feeling of a rim decoration, but seems a little odd for that. I wish one or the other pattern had gone through the whole piece, or that there was more of a transition between the two patterns. That said, it's a very heavy, solid glass bowl, and does look interesting on display.
