This stoneware spoon rest was thrown on a pottery wheel and then altered. There is a lip that is turned down so the handle of the spoon can set in it. I show it with a large wooden spoon so you can get an idea. The spoon rest measures approx. 5 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 1 1/4" deep. This piece is glaze with coral, green, aqua and tan glaze. It is stamped on the bottom with my personal logo. Dishwasher safe. Food safe. This is a hand made one of a kind item. Each spoon rest will be slightly different in shape and size. Some are larger than others so check size. Please note that due to a variety of monitor settings, the colors of this piece may vary slightly from the actual color. These spoon rests can be used for many different things. I use one as a coaster for my olive oil bottle. They can hold a bar of soap or a pot scrubber. The smaller spoon rests would also work as a used tea bag holder. You could use one to set a pillar or votive candle on. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for looking!!
