What a beauty....this large hand painted bowl/ wash tub with its wood stave and bentwood strapping was produced in the 19th century, circa 1840. This very large, solid wood bowl retains its original rustic blue paint which has THE most wonderful natural patina. This is a versatile item, it would display excellently alongside any collection of primitive folk art. A rare LARGE size and a great designer piece; we see it filled with luxury handmade white soaps and gloriously soft white fluffy towels, a real STATEMENT piece.
