What’s This?

My sister found this at a yard sale or goodwill and thought I’d like it… which I do – it’s very pretty.  However I have no idea what to do with it…


It has this little open well in the center that has an opening at the bottom.

EDITED to ADD:  The bowl is about 6 inches across and the glazed part inside is about 1.5 inches deep.  The bottom is solid – no other openings.


I suppose you could stick flowers in the center but they couldn’t be very tall or very big.

The Engineer thought it might be for scented oil with the reeds sticking up in the center… but again those reeds couldn’t be very tall and I don’t think I like the idea of scented oil in such an open container.

So… any good guesses out there?

I dont know how big it is, but maybe its a bird bath

looks like the top of a recirculating water fountain

Clare - the birds would have to be about the size of the little pottery ones sitting on the edge... wish it was bigger because it would so make a cute birdbath!

Mary -I did think about the fountain - I suppose water could pour in from another source and then pour out from where the birds are...

Maybe its a drinking fountain. The hole in center for the faucet and hole on side for overflow. Just guessing.

My thoughts were the same as MH's...a little fountain with a recirculating pump. sure is cute!
