Large Primitive Large Handcrafted Wooden Dough Bowl w/ Early Black Interior Paint c. 1800's

Large Primitive Hand Crafted Wooden Dough Bowl, Early Black Interior Paint

Regular price $249.00

Description:  Take a close look at the loads of character in this original, handcrafted wooden bowl.  This authentic, primitive bowl is rather unique with worn, early interior black paint rather than the exterior we normally are used to seeing.  Estimated from the 1800’s, it features light to medium wood tones on the exterior, dry patina, and out-of-round shape.  It displays prominent, interior chopping and cutting marks, scratches, and some chips on the base from much use in earlier life. There is a handcrafted hole approximately 2 ¼” from the upper lip, which was most-likely once used to proudly display this bowl when not in use. If you love early wooden bowls with a primitive worn appearance, consider giving this one a new home!
