This item arrive in good condition. I was really excited to receive this product. We do a lot of entertaining in our home and this piece is perfect for mixed nuts or even candy. This dish is solid white with a squirrel statue in the center. It is all ceramic. I do not see any defects in this item. This bowl is a definite conversation piece and I expect it will eventually be an heirloom item that will be handed down to my grandkids. This bowl measures 6" in diameter. The bottom of the bowl to the top of the bowl measures 2". From the bottom of the bowl to the top of the squirrel it measures about 5-1/2". It is a decent size and will actually hold quite a bit. I have attached pictures of the bowl empty and with some walnuts and pecans. It will hold a lot more nuts if they are shelled. I think this dish would also be great for buttermints.
