a missing piece of wood measuring 1 by .25-inch under rim of bowl…the vestiges of
time and use.

conforming recessed flange facilitating a snug fit within rim of bowl; finial surmounted
with brass upholstery tack is turned from the solid. The ovoid bowl with defined lip sits
on a turned foot that is slightly concave. Much of the original shellac remains and has
developed a soulful patina; most covered bowls were shellacked unlike food preparation
bowls. This well-loved bowl will make a great shelf piece and is very reasonably priced.

printing face was never painted. Fancy butters and premium butters made in small
batched were/are produced.
