Hand Turned 19th Century Wooden Mixing Bowl

Large, dark brown hand turned wooden mixing bowl from Pennsylvania farm country (near Valley Forge). It dates from about 1875 - 1900, and shows much use, but is still in very good condition.

The bowl is about 10 1/2" x 10", slightly oval in shape, and about 3" high. There is a rim turned into the wood and decorative lines on the inside. The inside shows many chop marks, and there is a 1 1/4" crack at at the side. The bottom has a few nicks and old "worm holes".

These mixing bowls were the work-horses of old farms - used for making bread, butter and preparing food. In the making of biscuits and pastry, shortening was chopped into the flour - I believe this was the bowl's primary use.

Great for display or to hold fruit. It has history and character.
