Hare and Tortoise Bowl and Spoon
Inspired by Aesop's famous fable, this is a charming Tortoise and the Hare textured circular pewter bowl and spoon set.
The bowl has a tortoise on the edge of the dish, and the accompanying spoon has a hare scampering along its stem handle.
Slow and steady wins the race with this splendid pewter hare and tortoise bowl which is ideal for sugar, salt, mustard, sauces etc.
A great 10th anniversary gift (pewter is 92% tin) and an ideal gift for Christmas, birthdays and weddings.
The tortoise and the hare
Aesop’s well-known account of a race between unequal partners has attracted conflicting interpretations. Although it is a common folktale theme in which ingenuity and trickery (rather than doggedness) are used to overcome a stronger opponent.
Perfect gifts for story lovers.
The tortoise bowl is 9cm (3.5”) in diameter and 2.8cm (1.1”) dee. The tortoise is 0.8cm (0.3”) high and the accompanying hare spoon is 9.0cm (3.5”) in length.
Each of our silver coloured bowl and spoon sets are packaged in a black presentation gift box.
Each food friendly bowl set is created by hand using polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead). We use solid metal so the surface of your bowl and spoon will never rust or flake. Just wash with soapy, warm water to clean.
