I had purchased another eggshell mosaic piece - coasters in a box - while in Thailand. I purchased this try to go with the coasters. The workmanship is good and the tray is very unusual in shape. However it is more yellow in color, and does not match the previous piece, which was crafted from more ivory and taupe colored eggshells. I put the tray in another location and it looks very nice.
This bowl came as pictured online, except that in the picture it appears to have a shine or a glaze finish. It does not. It is a hand crafted painted bowl, not glazed. It actually makes it look more authentic this way. I am worried that the paint may wear off eventually with cleaning or fade, if I notice that happening or become more concerned about it I will probably seal it. I certainly would not plan on using it for your keys, change, etc. anything that could scratch it.
