Boston bowls

Wilton’s Boston bowls are so-named because they took their inspiration from the design of an 18th century bowl discovered in a Boston antique store.

Made since the 1960s, Boston was the first Armetale piece produced by Wilton. Vintage pieces are expected to be particularly collectible in years to come, especially the earliest pieces from the 1960s.

According to the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act’s definition, “vintage” refers to pieces manufactured within the last 100 years and can include items made as recently as the 1980s.
