Collectable 1950s “Fire King” Tulip Nesting Bowls (Set of 4)


I’ve been a bit hesitant to list these tulip bowls and I’ve been sitting on them for quite some time now; mainly because I understand it is a lot of money to ask for a set of mixing bowls and secondly because I really kind of didn’t want to let them go.. *cough- hoarder!
Anyway so here they are!
A complete set of four highly collectable  “Fire King” tulip bowls in excellent condition! These bowls fetch a pretty penny in the US and I’ve seen them sell easily for as much as R5000.
I’ve personally never come across a single one here in SA so the likelihood of coming across another set like this one is slim to none!

Perhaps there is someone out there who simply has to have them, or maybe they can just live here on the website for awhile for all to enjoy!

*Please note that two of the bowls have slight print imperfections (see pics). These would have occurred during the manufacturing process, as you can also see on the one bowl in particular the tulips don’t quite line up with the stems. Remember although these bowls are quite hardy and excellent quality, they weren’t super fancy shmancy back in the 1950s, so little print imperfections and such are quite common.

*IMPORTANT* And I cannot stress this enough! Please please please don’t put these bowls anywhere near a dishwasher- I have seen so many horrors online- it keeps me up at night 😉
I also wouldn’t recommend pouring boiling water directly into to the bowl- I did this with another milk glass bowl I had (not Fire King), and the poor thing cracked straight down the middle :’-(
