    It's over 100 years old and has beautiful grain lines on both the inside and outside.It's 10 1/2" wide by 5" tall and because it's so old it won't get any darker.There's not a scratch on it anywhere and over the next 3 months I'm going to apply several thin coats of high gloss clear urethane and build it up to about a 1/8" thick and will post pictures of it when I'm done.

      These carved and turned bowls are called treen. They are usually found more at craft and artesan shows. Very beautiful.

      You can find treen artists nowadays at craft shows and a lot of pieces like this bowl would be quite expensive ! Amazing how thin some of these bowls can get.
