Rare Large Turned Burl Bowl, probably American, second half of the 18th century. Burl elm or ash. The bowl has a crack at the rim which has been stabilized and there is evidence that it once had handles. The expected wear and natural patina amplify its aesthetics; with its steep sides, cylindrical form and swirling wood grain the bowl becomes a piece of sculpture.
Dimensions: 9 1/2"h x 21 3/4" diameter
