French bespoke salad bowl with garlic grater, spout and white glaze

An ingenious design, this salad bowl has a spout and garlic grater on the inside. In France, salad dressing is prepared in the salad bowl, (always with garlic) then the salad leaves rest on top. When it is ready to be served, the salad is stirred which is traditionally after the main dish, but before cheese.
