These large bowls, produced in the Haute Savoie region of France, were used in domestic settings to collect milk. Wide and relatively shallow (they rarely exceed 16 cm in height), cream could easily be skimmed. A rounded rim and rudimentary spout facilitate pouring.
As is customary, only the interior of the bowl is glazed and it presents no other decoration. Most examples are either yellow or green.

Some minor chips to the interior glaze, otherwise a well-preserved rustic piece.

Diameter opening 39,5 cm
Diameter base 17 cm
Height 11 cm

Bibliotheca Culinaria began as a specialized publisher providing books to Italy's professional chefs. Our curiosity regarding culinary history led to an interest in material culture and the many tools and objects that relate to agriculture, cooking, and dining.

We've assisted restaurants, pastry shops, and hotels in locating unusual items for their decor and are always delighted to add to a collection of kitchenalia. We welcome the challenge of assembling groups of objects for maximum visual impact. Our stock, largely Italian and French in origin, encompasses a range of materials and eras from Alpine treen to French majolica, from copper pots to Murano glass.

We find objects that display signs of use to be particularly eloquent. Handling them, we are reminded of the lasting impact of simple quotidian gestures and they return us to the particular convivial atmosphere of past times.
