Compote Pedestal Bowl in Ivory gloss w. Tangerine
This handmade, Victorian mod compote (pedestaled serving bowl traditionally used for fruits, nuts, and sweets) is the perfect combo of vintage and contemporary style with a festive flair in deco and shape. A sophisticated yet fun serving dish for your dried fruits & nuts, seasonal fresh fruit, sweet treats, but also perfect for an elevated flower arrangement or planter, gourmet food service, or a jumbo margarita! While beautiful in use, it’s classy all on its own.
This pedestal bowl is glazed in a glossy ivory and decorated with tangerine, yellow, sky blue, & green polka dots and inlay pinstriping in navy layered with textural vining leaves.
All of my pottery is one-of-a-kind, and designed and handmade by me alone in my Massachusetts studio. I threw this form in two parts on the potter’s wheel, and decorated with carving, trailed slip (the clay version of cake-decorating), as well as underglaze color and inlay.
- Approx. 6 1/2" h x 5 1/4" diameter. Note the bowl's interior is approx. 3 1/2" deep.
- My work is both elegant AND intended for your use and enjoyment. Handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: while durable, hand washing is recommended particularly because of the little ball accent details along the rim.
- The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
Note: If your order costs less to pack & ship, I reimburse overages.
