The best charity shop find ever!

I nearly had a heart palpitation today when I wandered in to one of my local charity shops on my lunch break and saw this...

Yes, that's right, it's a gorgeous cathrineholm lotus enamelware bowl. It was actually hidden away inside a larger glass bowl so when I pulled it out I couldn't believe my eyes. I have never seen one in real life before, nevermind owned one. And here's the best bit... it only cost me £2.49! Looking at the prices that these go for on Etsy and eBay this may not be the beginning of a beautiful collection, but maybe one day I could strike it lucky again.

My cat seemed quite keen on it too...

Now I need to go and buy a whole new shelf just to display it on.
