This is unusual in that the size of the bowl is has a high capacity for the height and date.

We have been asked why we do not take images below the level of the rim of the bowl or tabletop height 'like everyone else'.

We refuse to take images at abnormal angles and tabletop height, below the rim of the bowl. We refuse to exploit parallax errors in an effort to make the foot look as large as possible. If you are used to looking at wine glasses below the rim height then may we suggest adding a little water.
