This stoneware dish measures approximately 5.75" long and 3" wide. There are 4 drainage holes so that water does not pool and there are also dips and ridges to direct water off. It is hand painted with white and ivory under glazes and then carved. The rest of the piece is glazed a glossy white. It's perfect for that hand crafted bar of soap (I love bar soap!) or a sponge for your bathroom or kitchen sink.
