The tortoise and the hare Fable
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.
The tortoise bowl is 9 cm (3.5”) in diameter and 2.8 cm (1.1”) deep. The tortoise is 0.8 cm (0.3”) high and the accompanying hare spoon is 9.0 cm (3.5”) in length.
Each hare and tortoise bowl and spoon set is packaged in a presentation gift box with care instructions.
Every Glover and Smith tortoise and hare set is handmade from polished, solid lead-free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter) and completely nickel-free and food safe.
Because our designs are all created in solid metal, the surface of your pewter bowl will never flake like a silver plated bowl. To clean, simply wash with warm soapy water.
All Glover and Smith English pewter designs are made exclusively by us in our workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK.
