A cross between a bowl and a plate, the iittala Taika Large Coupe Bowl is a helpful hybrid to have on hand for pasta, salad or stir fry dishes; though Asian-inspired, this versatile style is suitable for any cuisine. Klaus Haapaniemi's Taika (Magic) pattern infuses the center of the dish with rich color and folkloric design while leaving the rim a clean and creamy white. Combine this piece with other iittala collections such as Teema, Sarjaton or Kartio to create an eclectic yet cohesive set. The glazed porcelain is freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe to be as ideal for daily dining as it is for special meals.
Care: Dishwasher, microwave, oven and freezer safe
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range.

I am Loving the process of collecting this pattern! This particular bowl features the exotic fox character, and will be used as a large individual pasta bowl, or for serving a side dish. FinnStyle has the best prices on this pattern, and shipping is fast and problem-free.
ProsBeautiful, fun design and sturdy construction.

Perfect for how we eat now.
If you eat a lot of stirfy, or pasta or salads and soups. These are a "must have." We use these almost every day. They feel good in the hand and look pretty in combination with the diner plates of this series. Would also compliment and enhance less expensive dinner plates in a solid color. The magic fox/dragon is a pleasure. Too big for things like cereal and ice cream but excellent for fruit crumbles or other desserts that you might serve with sauce or whipcream.
ConsToo big for things like cereal and ice cream unless you want to supersize yourself.

Practical and pretty
I love that this pattern works with all blue, white and red Taika place settings, and the coupe shape is perfect for pasta or entree size salads.

Great new shape for Taika
We first bought Taika items a few years ago and one thing that bothered us was the shape of the Taika bowls--we prefer shallow bowls for soup, salad, and pasta. So happy that these shallow bowls are now available. The design complements our other Taika pieces beautifully.
