A very small (tiny, in fact) American Ash Burl Bowl, 4” in diameter and 1 ½” tall. It dates to the second half to he 19th century. There is a rim around the top and a foot rim. Also, there is a small "hump" in the interior center of the bowl: I believe this originally was a "weaver's bowl," kept on the loom with water in it because weavers need to keep their fingers moist. The "hump" comes from the constant rubbing action of the fingers on the bottom of the bowl. Excellent condition with rich color and strong graining. There is one small edge nick and an associated ¾” line. Will let the pictures do the talking on this one: they don’t come much better!
