Rare Lidded and Footed Burl Bowl.....SOLD
Northeast, ca. late 18th to 19th century. Expertly turned by a master woodworker from ash burl. The form and proportions are exceptionally well conceived and executed. Beautifully figured. Integrally-turned finial. Broad base that gives the design stability and balance. In MINT condition, the interior completely dry, the exterior with warm rich color. Very similar to the example shown in North American Burl Treen, Steve Powers, page 70, that piece I also owned and sold years ago. About 6 ¾ inches tall; diameter 5 ½. Provenance: Long time private New York collection.
