Rustic Farmhouse Dustbowl Clementine Fruit and Vegetable Bowls


If you're drawn to the distressed charm of our farmhouse bowls, it will be hard to resist filling them with your favourite orchard windfall and field harvest edibles. Choose from ripe tomatoes, harvest apples, succulent pears and mixed fruit.

Part of the "Dustbowl Clementine" line of vintage home treasures, and full of character, from their time-worn, fractured clay and hand-painted period hues, these stacked pottery bowls full of succulent, rosy pears apples conjure up the nostalgia of lazy afternoons in hiding amongst the bowers of bountiful orchards, returning to the sustenance of depression era cooking in a quaint farmhouse kitchen.

Tuck these little pieces of history into your favourite kitchen nook to transport back to childhood memories of Grandma's kitchen and the smell of sugar cookies, apple pie and homemade bread baking over a wood fire in the cast-iron stove.

  • while the bowl of tomatoes is a prop, the fruit-based bowls dispense animated, edibles
  • 9 distressed pottery textures (including solids and stripes in cobalt blue, red, gold & natural clay)
  • 80 distressed teatowel textures
  • delicious realism, from the glaze to the fractures and stains
  • tintable and modifiable to truly make them your own
