How can I replace this awesome bowl from Anthropologie?
March 26, 2012 6:34 PM   Subscribe

I loved this bowl, and then it broke. I will be disproportionately sad if I can't replace it. But how?

So for Christmas in 2010 I got this wonderful set of four bowls from Anthropologie. I am not a regular Anthropologie shopper, and hadn't realized that their bowls exist there for a few months and then disappear, or I'd have bought a bunch at the time. Sadly I did not, and now one of them has broken. I really want to replace it! But my searches have not been successful - replacements.org doesn't have pictures of Anthropologie bowls, it seems, and a search for the brand (I'm guessing? they say "biscuit" on the bottom) yields nothing of use. The Anthropologie website has not been helpful either. Nor has eBay.

So: what's my next step? Are there websites I'm missing? Is "Biscuit" actually a really famous brand that I have never heard of? Or am I doomed to live a life without a fourth beautiful bowl?

Here are pictures, JUST IN CASE one of you is a bowl expert (or an Anthropologie enthusiast/employee...)

You could haunt eBay for it, but it might be easier to have a potter replicate it for you. Doing so might be a little pricy, but it would be an awesome, handmade thing you could treasure forever.

Biscuit seems to be the brand that makes their latte bowls (which come in quite lovely colors). I doubt I'll find anything, but I'm searching google for you. =)

Hold up - is this a sister bowl in this blog post? If so, that at least gives you the name Anthropologie called it.

Thylacinthine: That is an interesting idea (and I would totally be willing to pay for it - I am weirdly attached to these bowls).

Maryr: YES that is definitely a sister bowl! Thank you - that's a huge help.

At Anthropologie. They usually make up their own names for products, unfortunatley, so if you can find the Biscuit brand web page, it probably won't be called "upsy-daisy" there. (At least that's been my experience with jewelry and such). Not having any more luck than that. Sorry!

I tied the Upsy Daisy idea earlier myself, FWIW, and got nowhere. Seemed like a dead end. Have you tried calling Anthropologie's customer service line?

Yeah, calling/e-mailing Anthropologie is my next step. I wasn't sure how much luck I would have if I didn't even know what they called it - my descriptive powers are not that strong - but armed with the picture of the bowl on their website, I have some hope. :)

Oh, try the Trade Market!
