This is an Early 1800s New England Primitive Lathe Turned Wooden Bowl Old Salmon Milk Paint. This painted wooden bowl was turned on a hand lathe, and you can see the lathe marks to the exterior and interior of the bowl. It is out of round from age and shrinkage (slightly oval). There is an old 3-1/2 inch age split to the side that is nice and tight. The bowl measures 10 to 11 inches in diameter and about 3 inches tall. The old salmon milk paint is authentic and right. The bowl has nice old dull surface, patina, and wear. Old salmon milk painted surfaces are very desirable. This is a gorgeous bowl in strong salmon color.
