Large Early Painted Bowl with Pronounced Shrinkage
New England, ca. 1800, appears to be turned from ash or chestnut with orginal red paint. This bowl stands out given its impressive size and dramatic soaring lines created by strong shrinkage across the grain. Further enhanced by a swelled-body and molded rim with inward cant. Excellent structural condition without cracks. Diameter ranges from 21 to 19 ¾ inches, with height 5 to 6 1/4 inches.
