On our dining room table I have a large shallow iridescent bowl I display mostly starfish and a few others that I just like the color:
This grouping includes the small brown starfish my daughter found while on vacation in June:

I have had this silver compote forever...and I am sure I didn't pay more than $10. I don't think I've ever cleaned it so well or even noticed the 1902 date on the bottom:
