Even if you didn't live in Japan during the Showa years, a very long period that started in 1925 and ended in 1989, you will immediately get the self-professed vintage style of the Aderia Retro Dessert Serveware: both the shape (wide and with a short stem) and the flower patterns that decorate them on their sides immediately bring to mind the previous century.
There is a reason the five bowls in the set really look like they came from postwar Japan: Ishizuka has been in the glass-making business since 1819, which means it was around to make this design when it wasn't even retro. So what you get with these bowls isn't just a copy: it's the real thing that you can use for your family or friends. Oh, and if you don't want to limit them to when you're having dessert, they're also great for temporarily storing small everyday items!
