DescriptionRound wooden bowl. Made from a burl of a tree. Has been carved out -- not turned. There is a repair made with tin on one side which covers a crack which extends over the lip and to the base.
InterpretationWe don't know who made this piece or exactly when it was made. We do know that it was important and useful enough to repair when it was broken. The tin piece is a scrap saved from another object, perhaps a lantern. This bowl is a nice example of how before the Industrial Revolution items were repaired and recycled rather than discarded.
