Blue Crab Large Bowl
Our whimsical blue crab bowl is perfect for serving salads or vegetables as well as for mixing!
Since the era of exploration, the Chesapeake Bay has been a key waterway for the colony of Virginia. The Chesapeake and the Potomac River, a Chesapeake watershed, also yielded a bounty of seafood. Fishing, before the opening of the Distillery, became one of Washington's most profitable enterprises. The bay provided shad, herring, bass, oysters and most famously - the Maryland Blue Crab. Records show that in 1799 George Washington purchased four dozen crabs for ten shillings.
The large bowl is handmade with lead-free and cadmium free American clay in Bedford, Virginia.
The bowl is a generous 11 ¼" wide and 5 ½" deep.
Made in the USA.
