cabbage salad bowl

Serve your summer salad in this giant cabbage leaf salad bowl for an impressive centrepiece. The bowl is hand-painted for a realistic finish. Also use to serve big pasta salads or even use as a fruit bowl. The cabbage tableware trend is seeing something of a revival. In the 1960s a full cabbage tableware set was the mark of a high-society household. Many pieces were highly collectible including Bordallo Pinheiro's iconic cabbage range. Now these hand-painted earthenware plates, bowls and dishes are back and taking the world by storm.
