In modern Europe, the main center for the production of brass bowls was Nuremberg. Initially, they were created for decorative purposes, without indicating a specific function. With time, they began to be used in households, for liturgical purposes, and even for barbers. In the 15th century, bowl breakers received a guild status, which clearly stated that their production could only be handled by the townspeople of Nuremberg.olor: # 000000; font-size: 16px; ">
