This bowl is beautiful, bright red with flecks of golds and browns. I have had so many compliments on it! I worried that it would look dirty after one person used it, but because of the swirls of color, it still looks good after someone washes their hands. I've seen bowls that are going for $300 at the big box home improvement stores - this bowl looks a lot more expensive than those ones. If you're looking for a bright beautiful bowl, this is the one to buy.
