REF: 2064 - 081020 / LA316044
For sale is a lovely deep profile, large wooden Swedish 'folk art' bowl in great condition with a locking lid from circa 1875-1900. - The bowl is an attractive and beautifully turned and rounded shape like a wooden curling stone with strong and deep set edges. - It has rectangular stub, worn handle for the twist lock lid in great condition. - The bowl has a deliberate markings on the lid and main edge to the bowl to indicate when the locking mechanism is engaged. - These lidded storage bowls were for food, butter, tobacco or in the smaller ones such as these they were used for snuff. These beautiful rural bowls often have locking lids. The locking mechanism is a simple pair of large and small tabs carved to the lid that slot under the track to the lip of the bowl and it rotates to lock/un-lock. Often as the wood has dried out over the decades and if someone forces it then they sometimes develop cracks close to the point that the lock in the lid engages, this one does not have this in contrast to many. A lovely decorative bowl in a highly attractive worn wood with a deep colour. *the images with an accompanying number of varying sized bowls is for scale and context, the other bowls are also for sale from W&W Antiques.
