This was one of my tops! I can't tell you how much I love that old bowl. And the way the edges of the semps echo that color is perfection. Well done.

The semps will pick up the color more later as the cool temps make them turn more red. The bowl belonged to a grandmother. I'm 67 and can't remember when the bowl hasn't been around. I think cheap enameled tin was more common in the early half of the last century. At least I seem to remember more of it from when I was a child. Cups, plates, bowls and pitchers. I think the cooking utensils might have been produced a bit longer. The enamel nearly always was chipped from use Smiling .

Needrain, I too am from Texas, east Tx. and am looking for some rhimzones of the achemenes. Would you consider selling me a few of yours. I can't seem to find any in my area. I once had purple and would love to get more of those. Let me know if you are interested and how much you would accept. I'll be happy to pay the postage. Alda
