Iron Bowl Gift: These beautiful, large contemporary Iron Bowls are a real statement piece, the perfect gift for a 6th Wedding Anniversary and for all lovers of handmade metalwork. Each bowl has been shaped by repeated heating and hammering using traditional skills and tools. No two will ever be alike, the subtle differences brought about during the forging process – that’s the beauty of hand made work.
Here at the Coach House Forge we make 4 Bowl sizes and this listing is for the 2nd largest which measures 200mm (8″) in diameter and stands 40mm (1.5″) high. The metal is 3mm (1/8th”) thick meaning that the bowl is a heavyweight, tipping the scales at approximately 800g (1 3/4Ib). These are really substantial and will last for generations!
The forged Bowls are treated with several coats of ‘Renaissance Wax’ to create an attractive and protective patina. The real beauty of the iron shines through.
Each Bowl is ‘signed’ on the base using the Coach House Forge touchmark.
Interestingly, each bowl rings like a bell if tapped on the rim – used to announce dinner time in my house!
Your bowl can be personalised to create a totally unique gift for your anniversary or special occasion. I can hand stamp your message using individual vintage letter & number punches.
