Manufacture de Digoin Parisian bowls
£14.50 - £70.00
Originally Parisian charcutiers’ bowls used for the manufacture and display of preserved meats, these make ideal serving and mixing bowls too. Hand made in the northern Loire valley by Poterie Digoin, founded in 1875 in an area rich in clay and silt mineral deposits, but as importantly at a major junction in the French canal network, whose distribution allowed the nascent pottery to quickly establish itself at the heart of the French kitchen. A choice of our sizes, approximately 12cm, 15cm, 21cm, and 29cm diameter and two colours naturel with a clear ash glaze, or fève tonka a kind of deep almost purple brown the colour of tonka bean skin.
