Rue used this bowl all the time, whenever she was putting out any sort of a buffet for guests. Even though it is old, it is sturdy and could stand up to being moved around and actually used. Notice Rue in Red White and Blue at the Obama Party she threw the day he was sworn in, so you can clearly see that it is her placing this bowl on the dining room sideboard – which was often used as a buffet. You can also see this bowl on the kitchen counter as a breakfast station was being set up for a morning photo shoot. Rue liked imperfections in glass, and so she was fond of the single air bubble locked forever into the side of this bowl. Comes with prints of the photos shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
