Bread bowls

I like to make bread in batches rather than one loaf at a time. This was a problem for me until my grandmother kindly gave me her enormous bread bowl. Large bowls are very hard to find. But there is this one from the wonderful Manufactum site- lots of v. old fashioned high quality items (though the clothes take old fashioned a bit too far...). You can somehow tell that the site is German but it's none the worse for that. I have just fallen in love with their copper bain-marie, and some lovely chains of silver balls for the Christmas tree that remind me of the ones we used to have. So far I've only managed to acquire a very reasonably priced vegetable brush from here which says a lot about my life...
