Vintage Enamel Bowls and Covers

65.00

I love kitchen ware that is both practical and pretty. I’m not sure which I am more enamored with - the set of vintage cream and blue enamel bowls that nestle so sweetly together - or the covers I made for them from a worn but oh-so-wonderful French tea towel. The bowls I found on my first visit to the large flohmarkt in Berlin, Germany. The dish towel I found in a thrift shop in the Loire Valley in France. Somehow, the two get along just fine :)

Three of the bowls are in great condition with slight wear to the enamel near to the inside top edge. But no chips or major marks inside or out. The 5 1/2 inch bowl has a lot of interior marks as depicted in the photo. Someone didn’t get the “no metal utensils” memo. It doesn’t affect its functionality but it needs to be noted. There is also a small mark on the outside of the same bowl. I thought not to include this bowl but since it looks fabulous presented with something inside or with its cover on - I decided it was better to keep it with the set. Remember: No metal silverware.

They are cream in color with a duck-blue modern floral design. Simple and fun.

I decided the bowls needed covers. So I went through my stash of worn vintage linens. This tea or dish towel from France seemed a perfect match given the colors. The fabric is cotton and I used a Japanese polished cotton for the lining. I wouldn’t store spaghetti sauce in either the enamel bowl or with the cover for fear of staining. Rather, use them to cover bowls of salad or pre-cut veggies that make for easy cooking the following day, to take food to a friend’s house, or to keep things covered when dining alfresco. I also think they look pretty displayed in your pantry. They are reversible so feel free to change it up. Wash by hand and allow to air dry stretched on the bowl to keep them fitting snug. The sizes of the bowls are as follows:

6 1/2 inch diameter by 2 1/4 inches high

5 1/2 inches diameter by 2 inches high

5 inches diameter by 1 3/4 inches high

4 inches diameter by 1 1/2 inches high
