Antique Primitive Wooden Lidded Bowl C1910

SKU: TMIR000458
  • Antique Primitive Wooden Lidded Bowl C1910

    A wooden bowl from the turn of the century with wonderful hand carved inscriptions of a heart an arrow, which also shows how to position the lid and base, and a name and the words ‘the hero/the brave’ . These bowls were traditionally used by shepherds and rural workers to carry their food for the day. Handcrafted, each piece is unique and shows its age and use in its patina.

    This piece is particularly fine for its age and is of a generous size. It would be a wonderful pot for a multitude of uses in the home and a perfect gift, especially considering its inscriptions.
