A late 18thc Welsh sycamore dairy bowl of large proportions with superb patina.
This piece has a turned line decoration on the outside.
This bowl has had woodworm at some point in time, but is not evident now.
It has had a repair on the rim (see photograph four), possibly in the 19thc which has been repaired in oak.
Sycamore was used for kitchen items as the wood is odourless & therefore has no effect on food.
For a collector this is a fine example of a piece of treen.
