Vintage Fridays: Fruit bowls to display summer's bounty
This turquoise blue fruit bowl will make anything brightly colored - a pile of oranges, as here, or lemons, bananas or mangoes - look even more appetizine.
This Victorian-era raised square bowl is ideal for a large collection of produce like mine, since it creates different heights among the bowls and highlights whatever is inside that much more. This could be used for cake or Christmas decorations in other seasons.
This beautiful Israeli fruit bowl shows a lovely patina that you only come across with vintage pieces. It's more oval shape and colors would be perfectly complimented by a bunch of bananas (which are a good idea to keep separate from other fruits anyway, as they hasten ripening).
Sometimes your fruit needs a little breathing room (when quite ripe, fruit shouldn't be smooshed or stacked on eachother). Enter this romantic little yellow wrought iron number (notice the hearts?) which would also be ideal for use outside.
If a modern style is your thing, this slightly asymmetrical 50's modern bowl on a small glass pedestal has a nice wide area and shallow for keeping all sorts of smaller fruits and veggies without threat of them getting lost.
