Measures 2 1/2" high with a top diameter of 4 1/2". This stunning bowl has a soft, light blue body blown glass body that is beautifully decorated with colorful thin glass threads or filaments of glass rolled into the glass body of the object in random patterns.The glass is then finished by glazing with a thin coating of clear glass encasing the colorful "threads" within the glass.
