This is one of the best turned New England wooden bowls I have ever owned as it has an untouched, dry attic surface that has never been fussed with and is in exceptional condition for a bowl that dates from the early 19th century.
The turned rim is bold and slightly concave that finishes at the top edge of the bowl with a two beveled surfaces. The interior shows strong ring lines indicating it came from a very old and large tree, the wood I am not sure of however this bowl is very heavy and has a warm patina. The foot is also beautifully turned and exhibits an unmistakable "ovid" shape from shrinkage that is finished off with strong adze curfs. The bowls diameter measures 26" by 24" showing a full 2" shrinkage and the height is 9". Though not burl or painted, this is by far a superior turned bowl that would enhance any collection.
