Trending - K Bowls
Antique English large white ironstone “K” bowls were first introduced in the mid-to-late 19th century. The white kitchenware bowl was produced at a time when white pottery was associated with food hygiene, and at least gave the allusion, that its use in the kitchen was the most hygienic way to prepare and store foods. The “K” stood for “kitchen” and thus the bowl belonged in the kitchen only. Original pieces are quite collectible and expensive...not to mention nearly impossible to find!
