Which materials are best for antique serving bowls?

Utilised and dinner parties and for weeknight family meals, serving bowls need to be crafted from sturdy and stylish materials. Due to their age, some materials are better for daily use when choosing an antique serving bowl. Glass and porcelain, while fragile if not used with care, are probably the most suitable materials for everyday use.

Which materials are antique fruit bowls available in?

Fruit bowls in our antique collection can be found crafted from walnut, oak and other natural materials including rattan. Our extensive selection includes dugout wood designs that create a primitive look that combines well with antique plant displays, while carved styles have a more polished finish. these beautiful antique fruit bowls may once have been used for 19th-century Italian passata or sifting flour in a Danish bakery, but it’s entirely up to you how you use them in your home.
