Enamel Bowl



I love this enamel bowl.  It was Fritz's grandmother's.  To me, the simplicity is beautiful: red on the outside, white inside, and the little black rim.  Smooth continuous surface that curls at the rim.  I like to imagine this design and color changes are directly connected to the process by which these bowls were manufactured. It's probably just wishful thinking, however.  I'd love a whole set like this.  So far, the only place I've found them is ebay.   Most of the ebay ones are not in very good condition.  I've always thought of this one as being rather rough - but it looks like a superstar by comparison.  I'm hoping some fancy kitchen store adds them to their inventory in the next few years.  These things cycle through, right?
