Cut glass bowl has five horizontal rows each with slightly concave circles. Each horizontal row has the same size circles but all rows are slightly different in size. The largest circle is the single one on the bottom of bowl. When held against a bright light, the bottom of the glass bowl illuminates an almost golden, fire-like hue.
