The leaf bowl is very realistic and I love the way the sides are slightly curled up and the veins of the leaf are apparent. The spoon handle is styled on a twig and it looks like it’s freshly dropped off a tree.
I’d use it serve pickles or chutneys in, or perhaps clotted cream for desserts. As both pieces are made of lead-free pewter (a pewter that doesn’t go grey), they’re fine for using with all manner of foodstuffs. When not in use, they’d be fabulous simply left out for decorative purposes.
This lovely piece is handmade in Britain by Ed and Judy Glover (nee Smith), from their studio in Wiltshire. The set costs £29.50 from the Glover & Smith store on Not On The High Street. For something as pretty and unusual as this, it seems like a pretty reasonable price.
