Fowler Ware pudding bowls,
made in Australia 1940s
Fowler Ware created industrial pottery in Glebe, Sydney commencing in the 1840s. After WWII, Fowler Ware moved to producing pottery for the domestic market : their pudding bowls were so popular that they opened a second pottery to cope with the demand.
This image shows the range of colours and sizes the pudding bowls were made in – and other posts evidence the rest! [I have collected a number of Fowler Ware pudding bowls….] The bowls and are still fit for purpose : I received a lovely christmas pudding made in one of these bowls- and after eating the pudding – I got to keep the bowl!
The large crimson and medium grey bowl are for sale : $AUD25 & $AU15 [or $30 for the pair.]
Bakewells & Fowler Ware pudding bowls
made in Australia, c.1940s
This set is a monochrome collection of pudding bowls- in a creamy, off-white. Collecting in a single colour is quite dramatic, and these bowls look fantastic in a white or neutral toned kitchen. I was inspired by a friend who has about 15 off-white bowls sitting on the top of her kitchen cupboards- in that space below the ceiling.
The larger bowl is by Bakewells, which operated out of Bexley in Sydney. The three medium sized bowls are part of the Fowler Ware ‘Utility’ range – perhaps off-white wasn’t as glamorous as the coloured bowls [see post below] and could be used every day.
The beauty of the off-white bowl is that any fruit/food/kitchen implement stored in them looks fantastic. And as mentioned in the previous post- the bowls are still great for…cooking puddings!
