  • Burleigh bowl from Middleport Pottery, the heart of British ceramics
  • Simple and elegant
  • Stamped with D.R. Harris logo and royal warrants

D.R. Harris (renowned grooming company for over two centuries) teamed up with Burleigh (pottery makers for over a century) to bring you a shaving essential generations old. That's a lot of history right there! If you love the wet shaving experience for the history and tradition, as well as the exceptional skin care and "me" time, then you need to take a look at D.R. Harris Earthenware Shaving Lather Bowl. Made at Middleport Pottery in Stokes-on-Trent, this bowl evokes Victorian charm and British practicality.

The heart of the British ceramics industry, the factory was recently renovated to keep the best of hand-crafted, centuries old practices in a new world economy.

This simple vessel is perfect for slipping in a puck of hard soap and lathering away. It keeps your soap in one place for multiple passes and reduces loss due to rinsing. If you submerge it in hot water before use, the ceramic holds the heat to give you a warm lather, pass after pass.

This attractive, elegant bowl can easily be left on your bathroom counter for ease of use. It is stamped with the D.R. Harris logo on the outside while the inside boasts the two royal warrants that D.R. Harris has received from the British royal family.

Bring a little class to your shaving den and history to your grooming routine. Product includes bowl only. Shaving brush not included and is shown for demonstration purposes only.

Very nice bowl

Good stuff costs money and this bowl is terrific! Large enough to really make a great lather, and it looks extremely nice on my counter.

Ceramic bowl, hot water, good shave cream, Feather blade: setup for perfect shave

After using a stainless bowl for years, I decided to try the D R Harris ceramic bowl. Good decision. It holds the heat well, allowing you to maximize the life of your shave cream. And, though harder to measure, you get the pleasure from holding the bowl in your hand. Elemental. Enjoyable. Try it.

DR Harris Earthenware shaving bowl

After years of using a pottery bowl thrown by a colleague (may it rest in peace), I ponied up big bucks for this item. It is nice, and it looks great in my bathroom. It functions really well with Mitchell's Wool Fat soap, but this is the only soap I have used. The dimensions, in the hand and soap/bowl interface, are near perfect. It is a little pricey, and this would be my only complaint. But, heh, it's only money, right?


Quality and distinction

I wanted to move from a shaving mug to a bowl to accommodate my Kent BLK8, which is a big brush, and this bowl is perfect. No more "clink, clink, clink" as I whip up my lather. The product description talks about soap, but I'm a cream guy and this works just fine for me. Obviously, I could have found something cheaper, but I enjoy stocking my shaving kit with quality products. Although the bowl is supposed to be dishwasher safe, I don't know that I would risk damaging the royal warrants and DR Harris stamps. Besides, I'm not going to be eating out of it, lol.
