Bookmarked: Anthropomorphic Dishware

Welcome back to Bookmarked. In this weekly series, I bookmark things I covet while sharing alternatives I can actually attain in the meantime. This is the anthropomorphic dishware edition.

Bookmarked - Anthropomorphic Dishware

Sometimes it’s great to be elegant and refined, and sometimes it’s great to be totally kooky in the kitchen. But what about the times you want to do both? Those are the times restaurants experiment with elevated pop tarts, pop-up books go classy on us, and I have an inexplicable hankering for anthropomorphic dishware.

Yep, you heard me. How freaking delightful is this reversible muse pitcher by Jonathan Adler?!? It's practically minimalist, what with being all white. I think the ‘stache on one side and the pretty lips on the other could actually make this quite an exciting and unique wedding present. (If any of you want to spring for it now, I’ll letcha know when I get hitched…)

For something a little bit more versatile, smaller, and easier on the budget we have this lovely footed bowl by Dylan Kendall. It's sweet and friendly, and you know it won't make a fuss at the table. The only downside to it is that you won't be able to blame your roommate/significant other/puppy when the sugar mysteriously walks away.

What would you make room for on your table?  An extra set of feet or lips?
