Symbol
Bowl
: Andrea herself ( dull, empty, lonely).
Also symbolizes Andrea being two-faced (Janus) by lying to one man and promising false commitments to the other - the bowl is a reminder of guilt.
Irony
Andrea lives in a "world full of tricks" and in the real estate game she will use anything to her advantage to sell houses (ex. her dog for buyers that are dog lovers).

Not only have the bidders been fooled, but the trickster herself is fooled too.
Point of View
