This bowl is made by either what we in swedish would call a "vril" (burl in english?) or a root piece..
The patina indicates it could be 19th century - or older? - I don't know if it shows in pictures, but it has the charm of an object that has been used and touched a lot. Also the wood under the bottom has darkened in a way which needs quite long time.
It has many red laquer mendings, which are old.
In a way it reminds me of some japanese carvings, and it reminds of boxwood..?
The bottom is left with no treatment, only "raw".
I would be most grateful for all suggestions and opinions about the origin of this bowl!
