This celadon coffee bowl in celadon green is fashioned after the traditional french coffee bowl. In France, at breakfast, everyone drinks from their own coffee bowl, which takes the place of a cup or mug. Bowls are preferred, because it is easier to dip your croissant or your tartine (buttered bread) into a bowl. Just as an American has a favorite breakfast cup or mug, the French person has a favorite bowl. In cafes, the french serve coffee in cups and saucers--the bowl is for use at home. This explains why most foreigners don't know about this custom; it's private and experienced only in a French home. Here's the joy of the coffee bowl....you can't do anything else while you drink from it! Goodbye multi-tasking. It makes the weekend coffee ritual intentional and almost meditative. The bowl warms your hands and spirit; this is truly joie de vivre!

If coffee is not your religion, this small bowl will hold about 1 1/2 cups (400 ml) of cereal, soup, or ice cream.This french coffee bowl was made on the potter's wheel, hand carved, and glazed in celadon green.

Dimensions: approximately 3" (7.5 cm) tall X 4 1/2" (12 cm) wide at rim.
