Large Italian Passata Bowl

  • H: 50 cm (19 11/16")
  • W: 24 cm (9 7/16")

Very pretty hand-thrown Italian passata bowl.

Passata bowls, also known as 'limmi,' originate from Puglia in Southern Italy. 

They take the form of rustic handmade terracotta bowls.

The beautifully decorative element comes from the cream glaze on the interior, which is splattered with vibrant green/ turquoise paint. 

These lovely bowls take their name from the fact they were often used for making a tomato paste or washing olives.

Passata bowls were used in diverse ways, though, including washing clothes with disinfectant in hospitals before the dawn of the washing machine. 

Beautifully decorative and full of history, these bowls could be used for domestic purposes or just for display. 

Other sizes are available.
