LARGE ASH BURL BOWL, 12", 18TH CENTURY

This is one of the best black ash burl bowls that I have owned. It was lathe turned with a foot and rim and has complex rings around the sides. What is especially like about the bowl is the great out-of-round shrinkage and uneven surface. The bowl is 12 1/4” x 3 1/2” - 4” tall with lots of "eyes". There is a natural flaw in rim that was there when it was turned. There are no cracks or repairs. It has a wonderful surface patina. Late 18th to early 19th c. Rare to find this nice.

These bottles were with flat sides to fit into a box for shipping to the American market. Rare size and with sharp deep pontil.

You just never find these miniature lift top blanket chests that are this early. Most of the ones that are found date in the 19th century. This wonderful American mini blanked chest has dovetailed construction and the top originally had snipe hinges.

The size is only 7” wide x 4” deep x 6” tall. It has the original varnished surface. The only issue is with the base. The pieces that form the legs appear to have broken. One was re-attached and the other one may have been replaced in the early 19th century. The nails used look like hand cut and square. The mini blanket chest dates ca.1760-1780. Rare. This came out of a very good 60 year collection in upstate NY. More photos are available.

Very rare Weller Jardiniere with a life-size Squirrel on the side. The designs also include Acorns and Oak leaves. The jardiniere is large, 9 ½” T x 11” D. This is a very rare pattern in Woodcraft.
