Antique Early 20th Century Large White Ironstone Barrel Banded Dairy Bowl by Boch Les Freres, Belgium
A very rare early 20th Century large white ironstone banded dairy or butter bowl.
Made by Boch Brothers, of Belgium, around the 1920s, this is a great large sized banded dairy bowl. Highly sought after by collectors, since they look fabulous on display, these large butter bowls are getting harder to find.
A bowl of this size would have been used for making butter. And the evidence is that this bowl has been well used and well loved.
Most notably, there is a significant crack in one side of the bowl. Due to this, I wouldn’t recommend using this day to day. There is also age related crazing which has stained through use of this bowl with dairy produce over the years. There is also a small chip to the base rim, although this cannot be seen when the bowl is standing upright.
In spite of these faults, this piece is such a substantial size that displays really well. It’s perfect for use with flowers or plants and also looks fabulous simply surrounded by other items of kitchenalia.
And its faults mean it is available at half the price it otherwise would be. Worldwide delivery is also fully insured.
