This beautiful, medium sized Iron Bowl is the perfect Anniversary gift for all lovers of handmade metalwork. Each bowl has been shaped by repeated heating and hammering using traditional skills and tools. No two will ever be alike, the subtle differences brought about during the forging process - that's the beauty of hand made work.

The perfect size for watches, keys, jewellery, loose change... The perfect catch-all.

We make 4 Bowl sizes and this listing is for the medium which measures 140mm (5 1/2") in diameter and stands 35mm (1 1/4") high. The metal is 3mm (1/8th") thick meaning that the bowl is a heavyweight, tipping the scales at approximately 400g (1 Ib). These are really substantial and will last for generations!

The forged Bowls are treated with several coats of 'Renaissance Wax' to create an attractive and protective patina. The real beauty of the iron shines through.

Each Bowl is 'signed' on the base using the Coach House Forge touchmark.

Interestingly, each bowl rings like a bell if tapped on the rim - used to announce dinner time in my house!

Your bowl can be personalised to create a totally unique gift for your anniversary or special occasion. I can hand stamp your message using individual vintage letter & number punches.

You can then choose whether you'd like the text highlighting - this is done by adding a light grey metallic wax to the stamped characters. If you'd prefer the text not to be highlighted then select 'Natural' - no wax will be added.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

We only use natural products to finish the metal. All forged pieces are treated with Beeswax and 'Renaissance Wax' to provide a protective and attractive finish. We do recommend that you occasionally treat the metal with Beeswax or a similar natural polish, this will build a beautiful patina and keep the piece looking great. Simply apply some wax and buff to a high shine.
As no lacquers or paints are used to treat the metal then over time, and if there is significant moisture in the air, rust spots may begin to appear. If this does happen gently remove the spots with wire wool and apply a coat of natural wax as detailed above. Given a little care and attention your piece will last for generations!

She loves it. Thanks so much. Funny thing she gave me one too, smaller version, that she ordered from you too!


My husband loves his anniversary gift! Highly recommend if you want a unique gift.


Love this! It was the perfect little bowl to catch my husband's pocket change at the end of the day. Great 6th anniversary gift!


A unique and great choice as a 6th year anniversary gift. Chris was responsive and prompt to deliver the bowl and my husband and I both love it. It’s a great size for bits and bobs he keeps by the bed and beautifully crafted. Thank you Chris.
