To Purchase Fiona Ice Cream Bowls

With the immense popularity of the first release of the handcrafted ceramic Fiona Ice Cream Bowls – inspired by her playfulness and persevering spirit – Rookwood and Graeter’s will have a second release of 1,000 bowls on January 25, available exclusively at Rookwood’s OTR Flagship Store. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., guests will have the opportunity to purchase up to two bowls per adult customer while supplies last. A portion of the proceeds from each bowl sold will benefit the Cincinnati Zoo.

If the bowls sell out, those who attend Fiona’s Birthday Party will have the opportunity to immediately place a backorder through Rookwood’s retail team prior to web availability on Monday, January 27 at 10:00 a.m. EST.
