Confit Bowls. SET OF 7. Two-Tone, Part Glazed Mixing Bowls. Pudding Basins.
A set of SEVEN mix and match confit bowls, in various sizes. Perfect for displaying in rustic farmhouse kitchens.
Each basin is different, all are "two-tone" with glazed interiors and wide borders. A lovely range of autumnal shades, from "speckled chestnut" to "sepia" on grey and beige. Most of the bowls are natural, unglazed ceramic, on the outside giving them a gorgeous "rustic country" feel.
They are all perfectly clean and useable, some are dis-coloured and slightly stained from years of genuine use in French provincial kitchens, which is desirable for that "aged to perfection" patina!
Altogether this set weighs approx. 4.5kgs/ 6lbs.
All in amazing condition, with no chips. They have a range of sizes and stamps on the bases. They have the beginnings of ageing "hairline crackle" to the glazes, which is to be expected with the age of this set, this does not in any way detract from their beauty or functionality; and in fact adds to the charm and authenticity of these gorgeous items.
The largest bowl is 24cms/ 9½" diameter (at the rim) and 11cms/ 4¼" deep.
The smallest basin is 11.5cms/ 4½" diameter (at the rim) and 6cms/ 2¼" deep.
The much older antique versions of these "Tian" (must have) or "Gresale" Bowls would have been used for preparing sauces or puddings and kept in the bowl for preservation, in much the same way as traditional "confit" pots.
A thoughtful gift for anyone who loves home baking, why not combine it with some vintage wooden mixing spoons!
