There is little reason why a dish needs to be round to effectively perform its function, so why don't we see more abstract items like the California Bowl? The shallow salver has a broad base and short edges that would allow it to contain a wide variety of edibles and other assorted objects.
Made of white dishwasher-safe plastic, the platter has been molded to form straight borders on four of its sides and to mimic the jagged contour of the coastline all along one edge. If you know your American geography, it's quite likely that you would recognize this iconic shape the moment you lay eyes on it.
Sold by Gamago, the California Bowl would be great for storing keys, coins and sunglasses at the front door, for serving chips and nuts in the family room or perhaps one's dinner in the kitchen.
