090514 The Lalique is pateriform

090514_LR“Pateriform” ‘Having the shape of a shallow bowl’ (OED). I’m not sure whether a shallow bowl that has the shape of a shallow bowl counts as being pateriform or whether the adjective only applies to non bowls. It does seem to be a bit botanical and specifically fruit related, so it might or might not apply to fruit bowls.
