A Serving Bowl #1
Offered is a stoneware serving bowl. Approximately 10" in dia. and 4" tall.
This shape, with it's wide flat bottom and straight flared walls , is called a milk pan. They were used for various house hold functions besides milking. Used in the preparation of foods, gathering of vegetables as well as other kitchen duties. These bowls were produced in various sizes, from the 10' to the 20" diameter, or bigger. This size is good for family size servings. Larger ones are possible on request.
Although most milk bowls were not decorated this one is meant more as a serving bowl than a utility bowl. The milk pan shape makes them stable and easy to carry. Thank you for looking.
