Lovely late 19th c large wooden bowl, treen ware, in it's original condition. I love the patina of the wood but one could oil or wax it to bring up a shine and darken it. There are no cracks! If you look closely the turn marks are visible on the outside of the bowl. The bowl is slightly out of round (3/4"), a cause of shrinkage. Looks great stacked with old bread and cheese boards! At some point someone carved out part of one edge as a grip. There is also a hole for hanging with a wire attached. Size 15" dia x 4 1'2" h.
