Antique 1800's large 56-inch long wood carved dough bowl trencher
This is one of the largest, hand carved dough bowls / trenchers I have ever seen. As shown in the photographs provided, the bowl itself measures 56.5 inches in length from left to right. The bowl measures 19.5 inches when measuring across in width. The depth of the bowl is just a little over 10 inches in depth. The bowl itself is in incredible shape considering it's age and decades of use. It does have one crack, as many of them do over time, and it is located up on the outer edge lip close to the portion that would be used as the handle. In my opinion, this just adds personal character to the bowl, and shows it's true age. When looking on the bottom you can see the actual carved bladed "strokes" made in the wood that formed the rounding of the bottom of the bowl. Is just truly an amazing piece of hand-made antique craftmanship. Very seldom are ones even close to this size still found, as most over time broke due to their length.
Estimate: $700 - $1,000
