Description

This fun and handy catchall bowl pays homage to William, The Met's unofficial mascot. The playful design reimagines the Museum's ancient Egyptian hippo figurine (ca. 1961–1878 B.C.) as a rotund ceramic vessel ready to hold keys, spare change, business cards, and other small sundries. Place him on your desk or dresser as a clever accent piece.

The original statuette in The Met demonstrates the Egyptian artist's appreciation for the natural world. Beneath its blue-green glaze, the body was painted with the outlines of river plants, symbolizing the marshes in which the animal lived. Since its arrival at The Met in 1917, William has been a visitor favorite.
