Medieval Rosewater Bowl 

Dutch, 1500-1550

If you're imposing you don't need to be pretty. Beautifully made, heavy bowl with stepped rim and a running dovetailed joint between bottom and booge. No decorative frou-frous at all, just a large, perfectly proportioned bowl. Rosewater bowls were used for washing the hands between the courses of a meal, and, we now believe, more frequently than that.

English, Mid-18th c.

Toddy Pot 

English, 1800-1820

Its ball feet allowed it to stand on the hot hearth to keep the hot toddy hot! A hot item indeed! There are not too many of these attractive pots to be found today -- yours can be one of the few hearths to have one!
