This is a bit of an odd assortment of pyrex mixing bowls. The style of bowl is called ‘Cinderella’ in reference to the shape of the bowl, which for some reason people seem to think resembles a slipper (I’m not sure if I see the resemblance myself!). The thing that I like most about these bowls (other than how handy they are – we use our set all the time!), is the design of the handle, which on the one side doubles as a spout for pouring – so very clever! The two floral bowls would originally have been part of a set of four bowls, and fit one inside the other. The plain blue bowl is the same size as the larger floral bowl – it’s from a separate set and can’t ‘stack’ in the same way that the floral bowls do. It’s also quite a bit more worn that the other two bowls, but still in good enough nick to use, and attractive enough to look great sitting on your kitchen shelf!
Dimensions: Medium bowls – 10cm tall x 22cm in diameter; Small bowl – 8cm tall x 15cm in diameter
Price: Blue bowl – R95; Pair of floral bowls – R150 for the pair
