Tiffany China, Bowl Review: Silver, Gold, Porcelain

Updated on January 6, 2015

Tiffany China and Bowls

Tiffany's china and bowls – made from porcelain, precious metals, earthenware, crystal, glass, and other materials – equip the kitchen with brand characteristic panache. Classic, yet exotic when possible, Tiffany's utensils carry an air of immediate comfort; items include, but are not limited to serving and vegetables bowls, tureens, jars, pitchers, platters, coffee pots, creamers, teacups, saucers, and gravy boats. Decoration themes, usually hand painted, range from traditional oriental depictions, to abstract, floral, animal, and fairy motifs.

The china can be usefully categorized according to two main colors: black, and white. Black pieces appear both heavier and edgier than white ones, and having more color adds a touch of intimacy to the mix. Red and blue glass bowls especially compliment the darker items as peripheral decorative pieces.

Silver bowls form a category of their own, some displaying such fanciful and intricate metalwork asto distract from what's inside.

Silver Bowls

Made of solid silver, these bowls can differ radically in design. Some abandon ornament almost completely, opting instead for robust architecture and unhindered function. Others, which act as home decoration items as much as kitchen utensils, open up not unlike flowers, and feature delicate scrollwork and bar-relief. The latter kind brings to mind the amphoras of ancient Greece – from which, undoubtedly, Tiffany drew inspiration.

Pitchers

Once again display a variety of designs and function purposes (food and drink oriented, or garden and greenhouse oriented). Probably the most surprising of all don't look like pitchers, but rather like trophies. Among the most versatile kitchen utensils Tiffany offer, pitchers come in silver, porcelain, crystal, and glass.

Platters

Another universal item: platters range in size and shape, oval and round being the most common.

Platters will compliment pitchers, which can stand on the former, together presenting a coherent decorative yet functional unit. Tiffany continue to employ silver, porcelain and crystal, essentially offering a choice between transparent, translucent, and opaque cookware.
