Stylish square glass bowl with low sides. This bowl will be used almost daily at my home because I can use it for so many different things, mainly as a serving dish, though. I use it as a small platter to serve the warm dinner rolls at the table. To hold candy or nuts at the buffet table, or display an arrangement of cookies. The glass is about 1/4" thick making the bowl sturdy, but looks stylish and elegant. Not terribly fragile. I like the Red Vaniilla series so well that I am slowly building a collection of the platters and bowls. They make a beautiful, simple statement on the table.
