Why is this is our favorite bowl? There's the terrific staple repair, the warm rich patina and the beautifully turned lip. There's also the well-used, out-of-round shape. Wow! In every way, this bowl has history. Long ago, it broke in two. Someone in love with it stapled it back together. We're happy s/he did. This bowl is big. 19 1/4" diameter one way; 20 1/4" diameter the other way. Stands a good 6" high. It's heavy. It's a good old-fashioned American treasure, like blueberry pie.
