Antique Country Primitive Carved Wooden Dough Bowl; 19th Century Hand Hewn Trencher


Here's an old, rustic, carved, wooden dough bowl in very good condition! We found this among some other awesome primitives inside an old barn and it's solid, rugged, and sound. There's no problems with active woodworms, termites, or dry rot. It dates back to the 19th Century and was hand-hewn from a log. It has a whimsical look with carved handles that add lots of charm! This old bowl has a wonderful, lighter coloring with a nice, old, dry patina along with signs of age and past use that add loads of character. It has all the charms of old, worn wood including nicks, color variations, worm holes, stains, grooves, etc. Bowls like this one were an important part of the rural household. They were often used to chop food, make bread dough, feed animals, wash dishes, wash babies, serve food, and more. Just like everything at the time, they were made to last and to be used over and over.

This bowl measures 27 1/2 inches long, 8 3/4 inches wide, and about 3 1/4 inches high, making it a great size for a centerpiece! It's a solid, rugged, well preserved bowl that has a folksy, old-world appearance. Great for interior decorating, this old dough bowl is a genuine antique, not one of those newly made ones from Mexico or China. Change up its look from time to time by filling it with fruit, pine cones, balls of yarn, wooden spools, blocks, walnuts, acorns, primitive tools, ornaments or whatever you can think of! One of the photos in this listing shows wooden spoons displayed inside (not included) as an example. If you like decorating with primtives or county items, you won't be disappointed in this quality, antique, handmade piece! Awesome gift idea for house warming or newlyweds! Looks great on a fireplace hearth, coffee table, standing in a corner or hanging on a wall! Great Christmas gift too!
