Oh this is indeed beautiful. That glass is called something like "hobnail", don't remember exactly. My grandmother had a small jar with glass stopper, a more aqua color, but I had it in my room growing up and seeing this I have no idea what happened to it. I loved it. The raised pattern was so unique. You are blessed to have a friend gift you with this. Such a lovely, lovely treasure. Blessings.
Gosh, it is a pretty thing... lends elegance to a place. You do take great pictures...
love this bowl, because it's my favorite kind of blue!
