JCPenney also has a playful new Royal Doulton collection that includes stainless steel serving bowls with pops of color inside. The 9-inch-diameter orange bowl shown here was $40. The same collection includes ceramic plates and bowls with punchy graphics, including the 4.25-inch-diameter "Every Dog Has Its Day" and "Right As Rain" candy bowls pictured here, $25 for a set of two. JCPenney also has a Museum of Modern Art mini shop, where we found an owl kitchen timer from hip housewares designer Kikkerland, $15, as well as an old-school fingerprint art set so we can channel Ed Emberley, $12.
