My son turned 6 months a couple of weeks ago and started having solid foods. In order to prepare some food my wife bought a mash/serve bowl and the bowl looks like it would serve as an awesome shave bowl as it has small ridges on one side. I've been tempted but did not want to contaminate the bowl with any shave soap etc.
It's rather small and light but here it is. I wanted to share it with you.

Looks interesting; the handle should let you get a good grip, while the ridges ought to help you build lather - I'm sure he'll let his Dad borrow it once he gets a little older Tongue

What's the rough size ? Hard to guess without something beside it to guess.

It's actually quite small. I'll take more pics with something next to it.

My wife bought me a $50 shaving bowl from AOS for Christmas. I kinda felt bad but I exchanged it for some preshave oil. 

My reindeer-themed Pottery Barn candy dish builds a lather just fine. My mom purchased it at a yard sale years ago, and I "requisitioned" it several years after that... 

My point is: who cares how it looks, or what its original purpose was. As long as it builds a nice lather, right?

I would think the ribbed bottom would work well.

Hello again, this should give you an idea about the size of the bowl. The razor is a Parker 26c. I believe it has 100mm handle.

Seemed big enough to use as a shave bowl when your baby has outgrown it.

Yeah, I could do that but nowadays I just face lather 90% of the time plus I have a bowl I like, so I don't really need another bowl. Just wanted to share this, because there seems to be a lot of interest in bowls with ridges.

I have purchased this bowl !
Thank you for sharing !

I was surprised by its size - too small to my liking, but it is definitely  better than a cup for me !

Share your impressions of the bowl when you get a chance.
