Huge, 10 Inch, Mixing Bowl. Two-Tone, Part Glazed, French Confit Basin.
This is a large, farmhouse kitchen, mixing bowl with a very useful pouring lip. The wide "speckled chestnut" rim border and inside have been glazed, the outside is natural, unglazed ceramic, giving this bowl a charming "rustic country" feel.
It is large and heavy, weighing 1.7kgs/ 3.75 lbs.
It measures 25cms/ 9¾" diameter, at the rim (26cms/ 10¼" to the lip). It is 13.5cms/ 5¼" deep and 13cms/ 5" diameter, at the base.
In excellent condition, it has no chips. It is a genuine vintage item, so has lots of very desirable "hairline crackle" to the glaze. The crackle is visible throughout, adding the essential "rustic charm".
Perfectly clean and ready to use in your home or professional kitchen. The outside of the bowl has some "clear" glaze dribble marks made whilst glazing the inside and rim, giving it an authentic patina. As the outside is unglazed it has surface marks, consistent with use.
These "Tian" (must have) or "Gresale" Bowls would have been used for preparing cassoulet or meat based foods and kept in the bowl for preservation, in much the same way as traditional "confit" pots.
It is perfect for cake making mixtures, kneading bread or perfect as a French farmhouse table centrepiece for fruit / salad serving.
A thoughtful gift for anyone who loves home baking, why not combine it with some vintage wooden mixing spoons!
