Gruel Bowl

English, 1720-40

Sycamore. A good,thick bowl with a well-waxed English patina on the outside and lots of evidence of use inside. Warm honey color. Uneven saw marks on base. Nice to imagine eating a bowl full of gruel in the middle of a long day's work it's just about big enough to have been shared among two. You'll find lots of uses for it. Very good condition, no splits or restoration.
