Three Little Bowls

Trio of Mid-Century Modernist Triangular Form Nut Bowls with "Mirror Fade" Rims (LEO Design)


Here is a trio of bowls to give your next dinner party a lift!  These three bowls, "squeezed" into their triangular shapes while the glass was still hot and pliable, are finished with a heavy "mirror fade" silver rim.  They were made by Dorothy Thorpe in the Sixties—who would purchase quality glass "blanks" from other manufacturers and decorate them with her signature silver trim.  These three bowls are great for nuts, candy, or assorted trimmings on a sundae bar.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
