Footed Bowl vs Fruit Bowl

Hi there,

1st of all, look at this pic.....

I found this from store.metmuseum this morning while I'm looking for my bowl design project.
Look very nice and style but I don't think it's suitable for daily use.
If I got it, I will use it as a decoration on my dining table as a fruit bowl.

Info :-
One of the most unusual—and favorite—objects in the Metropolitan Museum’s Egyptian Collection is a red-polished ware bowl with supports shaped like human feet. Although the human feet add a touch of levity to its appearance, they were not created solely as an element of humor. This ceramic form should most likely be read as the three-dimensional hieroglyph for the word “w’b,” meaning pure or clean. Our reproduction is a copy of a bowl from the Predynastic period (ca. 3750–3550) in Egypt. 

  • For decorative use only. Wipe with soft dry cloth; do not use abrasive cleansers.
  • 3 1/2''H; 5 1/4'' diam.
  • High grade terracotta
 Excavated footed bowls were often found in cemeteries as an offering of clear water. The bowl tips forward so that purified water could be spilled out onto the ground.
