Plum pudding is a hallmark of British cooking, especially at Christmas. English pottery manufacturer Mason Cash has produced a classic and widely recognizable steamed pudding basin for hundreds of years. In fact, the British royal household gives their staff Christmas plum puddings packaged in Mason Cash basins.

This unique company is closing their doors, however, and only a limited amount of these traditional bowls are still available. Sets of red and blue basins are available for $27.95 through Lehman's, and a few white basins are still available individually through Amazon.
