New England, ca. 1780-1800. Maple, in dry red paint. Footed with molded rim. Chisel tool-marks under the base where the block was removed after lathe-turning. The paint is a particularly appealing bright hue of red with complex surface. Deep beehive turnings, shrunk well out of round without cracking. About 15 +/- inches diameter x 4 1/4 to 5 tall. This fine example stands out amongst early painted bowls; this is one you will want to keep.
