And I have an orange spatter one too, and I'd agree with Keith's suggestion.  8) I do like them!

Welcome to the board, EddyCatt  :)

Wow, thanks guys/gals!! It's good to finally know what it is. What would the dollar value be on this? I'm not going to sell, just curious really. I spent at least 3 days trying to find what it is, got it down to being a powder bowl. Is it part of a trinket set? Or a stand alone piece?

And thanks for the warm welcome.

Welcome, EddyCatt!  ;D
Valuations are very subjective, we don't really discuss them here. But for your curiosity, I can tell you  that you won't be able to give up your day job.  :'(
If you have a look on ebay for similar things and watch to see what they go for, you'll get an idea. Chips and fleabites on the rims of these are fairly common and reasonably forgivable, but they will still affect any value; the scarcity or desirability of your colour scheme (if it is scarce) will also have some bearing.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I think these are standalone pieces, rather than being made as part of a trinket set. I've never seen matching pieces of them as a set, but... never say never....! ;)
