when i first saw this, i thought 'unusual pacific island bowl to go with my giant wood forks and spoons', but when i picked it up, it was different. It's much darker wood, heavier, much harder than the regular wooden bowl and is much older too. At the youngest, this is late 19th c. It's purplish red in places and dark black in others. the shape is not one i would have guessed for an older bowl. i'm perplexed! where is this from and what kind of wood?
