I don’t know about you, but I didn’t even know what a “dough bowl” was until about three years ago! I think I first saw them in my local antiques store, and then again on a blog. And then on another blog. And that’s when I became intrigued and had to find one. Maybe it’s because I’m a baker, but there is something so romantic about antique dough bowls! I love the thought that someone once made homemade bread in them, that they were used to feed their family and friends. And their patina! Now there are plenty of reproductions around these days, but the patina on the real ones is far superior. It’s taken years of work and use to make them look the way they do, and that’s a pretty hard thing to copy.
