Scarce Treen Americana-- BURL PLATE (not a bowl)
Northeast America, ca. 18th century. Appears to be ELM burl. No traces of lathe marks, so likely hewn in the form of a turned plate. Perhaps Woodlands-Indian made. Remarkable survivor. Very organic with ancient dry surface, the inside recesses showing traces of white, probably indicating a dairy use. About 9 1/2 x 9 inches diameter x 1 1/2 tall. For the collector who loves early Americana in surface.
