Breaking Bread |

A hundred years ago, homes in all parts of the world would possess a dough bowl; a vessel in which dough was mixed, it then also provided a warm place in which it could rise before being baked.  Bowls could be made from any wood as long as it was free from knots and other defects and were commonly handed down through generations. 

At the beginning of the 1900s, hand carved bowls such as these were used by bakers living in farmhouses in Turkey and Eastern Europe.

Alongside the history of these incredible dough bowls and boards - they also offer perfect styling solutions within the interior. The rare find -  A huge dough bowl with stand -  would work well to roll up the AU blankets at the end of a sofa or bed.

The smaller bowls work beautifully in a centre of a table or in a bathroom setting full of crystal geodes.

Vintage dough bowls can serve many different purposes.  Easily cared for, they can be gently cleaned used warm water and mild dishwashing soap and because wood is proven to be naturally antibacterial, they needn’t just be decorative.
