Mid Century ModernLathe Turned Nut Bowl
This is a gorgeous bowl. Calling it a nut bowl sounds kind of dorky to me.This bowl has such a sculptural feel to it.
I did clean it. It had a thick, nasty, irregular coating of oil on it. First photo isof the bowl before cleaning. I also removed the moth eaten green feltbut have a piece of it if buyer interested.I coated the bowl with mineral oil and rubbed as much off.
The bowl is beautifully turned. The rim is very thin.The graining is very nice.The finial has a bull's eye pattern on top.
A couple little nicks in the rim. I guess whoever was crackingnuts whacked the rim. There are also a couple of reallysmall indentation in the bottom of the inside of the bowl.There is also a 1 1/2"crack in the bowl which was glued.Minor damages overall.
Diameter of the bowl is 26 cm. Height is 10 cm and 11 cm including post/finial.Base is 19 cm in diameter and the post/finial is 3 cm.
Because of the spot on metric measurements I think this bowlis Scandinavian in origin. That Danish Modern style.I accept Paypal and payment is expected within 3 days of close of sale. The bowl will be sent outUSPS Priority within 3 days of receipt of payment.
Thanks for your interest!
