1950s Grindley breakfast bowls

I think these are possibly the nicest bowls that I’ve ever seen – seriously! They were much more than I’d normally pay for a set of bowls, but I think I would have paid nearly anything to get my hands on them! Aren’t they just great?! The colours are so bold, and I really like that rather mad speckled glaze. They also have a great retro shape, and are quite large so you could use them for anything really, not just your morning cornflakes.

A wonderful set of retro bowls that I really, really wish I could justify holding onto!

Note: There are only five bowls, instead of the standard six.

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 16.5cm long x 14cm wide x 6cm deep

Price: R240 for the set of 5 bowls
