Huge Stoneware Mixing Bowl. Charcuterie Bowl with Pouring Lip.
This is a huge, stoneware butcher's bowl, with a very useful pouring lip/spout.
Marked "Charcuterie Elaborée à Partir de Porc Fermier Plein Air. Tradition de Vendée" all around the outside rim. This translates to "Cold meats from free range pigs reared in the open" "*Tradition of the Vendée."
*Founded in 1977 ,"Tradition de Vendée" is a French company specialised in producing traditional delicatessen (craft charcuterie.)
The whole range of products is made from pork based on free range pigs reared in the open.
Originally used for the preparation and storage of terrines, it will add a touch of "French country" style to any kitchen.
In excellent condition, it has no chips or cracks. It is a genuine vintage item, so has lots of very desirable "hairline crackle" to the glaze and some discolouration "tea staining lines". The crackle is visible throughout, adding the essential "rustic charm" but does not effect the integrity of the bowl whatsoever. It has many years of service yet too offer.
It is large and heavy, weighing 1.6kgs/ 3.5 lbs.
The bowl measures 28cms/ 11" diameter, at the rim (30cms/ 11¾" to the lip). It is 12.5cms/ 5" deep and 16cms/ 6¼" diameter, at the base.
The much older antique version of 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.
This more recent bowl 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!
