Egg shell mosaic gourd Small bowl gourd. Egg shell mosaic band around the top.
This one is actually the result of an accident. It started out a full size gourd like most of the rest of mine. However, these gourds don't take high falls in my garage. Oops! The top cracked clean off. So I cut the bottom edge smooth, cleaned and painted the inside, and viola! A bowl.

I included a photo of the bottom. There are "drainage" holes because I did use this as a planter before it was dropped. And there is a fine, hairline crack on the bottom. (Not visible unless you flip it over and look for it!) So for trinkets, or even a plant bowl again, there is nothing wrong with this.
