Todd Kuwitsky found this very interesting large berry bowl at a mall in the Kansas City area during the 2017 HOACGA convention. It's amethyst, round and, as with all other Feathered Serpent pieces, has the Honeycomb and Clover exterior. However--the pattern in the center of the bowl is missing.

An extraordinary item, the only one known, this Feathered Serpent whimsey ladies spittoon in green sold at a 1999 auction for $7,500, and at a 2011 auction for $3,500. In 2020, there was another sale for $6,000.

It was made from the small berry bowl and measures 3 3/4 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches high.
