Little Red Painted Bowl
Classic Form
New England, ca. 1800.  

Lathe-turned, original bone-dry red paint, with black paint highlighting the rim and the foot, on what appears to be chestnut. Classic form with turned foot and rim that stand proud. Well shrunken out of round, to an oval with pronounced “potato-chipping” without cracking. Tiny inconsequential hole added in period for hanging. Underneath tool marks showing clean up from lathe connection as expected for this form.

About 7 x 7 ¼ inch diameter x 2 tall. Nice for stand-alone or nesting.
