An Absolutely Gorgeous, Extremely Early ,Pennsylvania Ashwood Burled Bowl ,In Excellent Original Untouched Overall Condition. This is an Outstanding , Amazingly RARE Example ,and Is Most Likely A Native American Piece. It was Entirely Hand Carved and Formed , using Simple Tools of the Day ,and it must have taken Months to Complete !!! It was Not Turned on any kind of Lathe ,and No Metal Cutting Tools were used in it's making. It has an Irregular Shape ,and the Surface is Beautifully Hand Worn Smooth, and it has a Wonderful, Warm Patina. The Burled Tree Knot that it was made out of must have been easily 200 Pounds in weight. The Grain is just how I like to see them,Thousands of Tint ,Close " Eyes", and a natural flaw in 2 places.
