Rowe Pottery – Beautiful to Look at – Too Special to Sell – Puzzling in Some Ways – I Will Keep Them and Use Them –

Rowe Pottery

We are doing a special kind of housecleaning where all things are examined and judged for usefulness or beauty or some quality that says an item should take up space in our home. These are part of a collection of Rowe Pottery. They are sturdy, heavy, and useful, yet I’ve not used any of them except the one storing my kitchen utensils.

I see a use for the one shaped like a loaf pan. I can bake meatloaf or or stuffed peppers in it, but I usually cook meals for only two. This baking dish would easily accommodate a party of four. Ah, I could bake quick breads in this one.

The spice jars I display, so really I am using them, but not for holding spices.

The one with the antelope on the front looks like a crock pot. I could slow-cook a batch of baked beans in the oven in this pretty pot. Maybe I will do it soon since it’s getting cold outside.

I know what a sugar bowl and creamer are used for, but I don’t put sugar in my coffee, and I pour my cream out of the original container and place it back in the refrigerator to stay cold. Where is the adventure in that? Perhaps I need to make more fun out of my breakfast time. Steve and I go our separate ways in the morning, each to a private devotion time, I with my coffee and cup of custard and he with his Breakfast Essentials (instant breakfast) mixed in milk.

  1. Do they make bowls for bundt cakes?…Silly thought, I know…

    • Not sure, but why not?. Ha! Personal pan pizza? Personal bunt cakes. They are shallow bowls. Some super-smart cook or chef may have the answer. They are a mystery to me. I can’t even stack them. They jiggle. Thanks for your comment. Blessings to you, Michael…

    We’re trying to do the same thing. I want to stop clutter before it begins 🙂 Sorry, I can’t help you with what that bowl is. I haven’t seen anything like that!

    • Thanks for your input on the bowls. I’ve never seen anything like those bowls either.

      Today I used the crock pot to bake barbecue beans. It’s a very small crock, but it’s big enough for the two of us. It would not be large enough for a family. You would need a larger one.
