A rare antique wood bowl with a blue-green painted rim. The bowl originally dates to sometime around the mid-1800s. The paint was likely added in about the 1930s, and someone varnished over the paint in the 60s or 70s to prevent wear.
dough bowl This is art in its simplest form. Art in the patina and beauty of the worn wood; art in the story the bowl tells of loads of dough kneaded and risen for the family meals; and art in honestly carved wood from the planet. K.W.
