Vintage French Stoneware Mixing Bowl
Let's get mixing.
Wait till you hear the story behind this rare collection: It goes back to 1847, when Stanislas Renault first opened his workshop in Argent-sur-Sauldre, France. One move and 173 years later, the Poterie Renault business had stayed in the family for five generations, continuing to handcraft iconic stoneware from French clay (and even fire it all in the original kiln). Sadly, they’re closing their doors—but not before we were able to snap up a treasure trove of vintage pieces. We brought them here just for you, and they’re available exclusively at our Shop.
We can’t think of a more appropriate bowl to prep our brioche doughs and meringues in. Every vintage stunner you see here comes straight from the French countryside, where it was hand-shaped from local grey clay and salt-fired for a timeless finish. (Shoutout to the handy pour spouts.) These mixing pals are sturdy, too, since they’re stoneware through and through. Their hefty weight means they won’t slide here and there as you whisk up a storm, and they just so happen to be oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe, to boot. Now, if only we could decide what to whip up first…
