It's a Mdina "Chinese bowl". That's the official name for these bowls with those three clear looped straps around them.
It's 5.5" diameter and 4.75" tall.


You are correct. The cobalt is a little deeper than royal blue, (more black) but less Quink-y than navy (less purple).

And the cobalt is perhaps a bit more vibrant ?
Thanks for posting the pic  :)
