Nostalgia Day 30: Vintage Bowls

I have a pretty big collection of old mixing bowls. Lots of meals and baked goods were mixed up and served in these old bowls.








I have four gray stoneware colored bowls in different sizes. No maker marks.


This of course is a Fireking jadeite bowl. This one was my Grandma's.


This one is a vintage Pfaltzgraff bowl.


This little bowl was my Grandma's too.


This flat bowl is a vintage McCoy.


I like the white stripes on the mustard yellow.


Another striped bowl.


Another McCoy.


Plain white with concentric stripes.


Love the design in this old yellow ware bowl.


This one was also my Grandma's. It looks like a fiesta but is unmarked.


Small white bowl with a fluted design.


This old bowl was also Grandma's. A neat design, color and all over fine crazing.


This bowl is one of my favorites.

With the exception of the ones noted most of these bowls are unmarked or simply marked "made in the USA".

This is where I display them:



In my kitchen in the built in corner shelves,



And in the laundry room in a bowl shelf.

Do you collect any old bowls?
