I purchased this large antique French Empire Dome Shade on Etsy a few months ago. It is so elegant and sparkles in the light. I was looking for the perfect holiday centerpiece and couldn't find anything I liked. Then it hit me.... turn this upside down and use it as a bowl. I filled it with some of my favorite vintage Christmas balls and mercury glass ornaments. I will eventually use it as a light fixture but for now it looks wonderful on my table.
