This little star shaped vessel is actually a scoop. It is perfect to sit or hang near your canister set of flour and sugar and use to scoop out ingredients. Its cute when hung as usable decor. It is glazed in a mottled glossy blue and the handle is unglazed bare clay. The star scoop is food safe. It is made of stoneware clay. It has bare clay on the round bottom underside. The scoop is approx. 3" from point to point and 4 1/4" from point to top of handle and 1 1/4" deep.
