A large and fascinating Wooden Scoop, noteworthy for its rectangular shape and unusual canted bottom. Instead of coming straight down to meet the bottom, the sides slant-in about 7/8”. The scoop is constructed out of 3 pieces of wood: the bowl with the open ends, the back section and the handle. The construction is almost seamless, although there are a couple of nails holding the back-board to the bowl. Overall length is 15” including the handle; the bowl is 10 ½” x 6 ½” x 2 ¾” high.

Overall condition is very fine. The wood (not sure what type – very little graining) is smooth and mellow and at some point it may have had paint on it (wouldn’t that be nice!). The bowl itself is free of chips, cracks, etc; there is a thin line in the back board that extends about ¾” on both sides, but does not reach the bottom and does not threaten the integrity of the piece. One assumes this comes from a General Store. A nice primitive!
