This is a matching set of two, stoneware butcher's bowls, with very useful pouring lips/spouts.
Marked "Charcuterie Elaborée à Partir de Porc Fermier Plein Air.""L'Héritier du Goût" all around the outside rim. This translates to "Cold meats from free range pigs reared in the open" "The heir of taste."

Originally used for the preparation and storage of terrines, they will add a touch of "French country" style to any kitchen.

In excellent condition, they have no chips or cracks. They are genuine vintage items, so may have the slightest beginnings of "hairline crackle" to the glazes.
Both bowls have clay lines in the lips, formed pre-firing by the potter, they are simply the "drying cracks" caused in the formation of the lips, present at the "curing" stage of manufacture, not flaws, but they are noticeable, so please take a good look at the photos.

Both of these bowls are heavy and sturdy.
The smaller bowl measures 23cms/ 9" diameter, at the rim (24cms/ 9½" to the lip). It is 10cms/ 4" deep and 12.5cms/ 5" diameter, at the base. It weighs 1.1kgs/ 2.42 lbs.
The larger 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. It weighs 1.7kgs/ 3.74 lbs.

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.

These more recent bowls are 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 them with some vintage wooden mixing spoons! voilà!
