Ceramic porringers looked like large cups, but were actually bowls used for serving foods that were eaten with a spoon. Early porringers were made of earthenware and later stoneware. Also made of glass, wood and metals, like silver and pewter, they varied in size and shape. Porringers were popular from early colonial times to the start of the 1800s.
The stoneware porringers I offer are large enough to easily hold 16 oz., of soup, stew or chili. Maybe even a little more. They are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. Surely I don't have to tell you, they are food safe also, but they are.
The porringer shown here is a general representation and not an exact copy of the one you will receive. They are all made individually and vary somewhat. Colors vary from firing to firing.
Did I say they hold a lot of ice cream, with chocolate, strawberries and whipped cream?
