Fruit bowl - "Pleasures may fly"
Fruit bowl with hand-carved and painted pattern of roses and ribbons in caramel tones. It has an engraved rim with inscription:
"Roses may wither and pleasures may fly, but somewhat there is that can fade not nor die".
The original gloss on the inside has become tarnished, possibly from contact with the acid in dressing if it was used as a salad bowl, or washing with abrasive products.
