Publisher 19th C.
Seller ID 90-0890
2 1/2 d. x 1 h. bowl with 10 1/2 l. handle. The lower section of the handle is a 5/16d rod that is flattened & tapered in the upper section, which terminates in a curl-around rattail finial. The lower end of the handle is bent downward 45 degrees before being affixed to the bowl. 13 l. overall. This is a Pennsylvania piece of at most the 19th C. and could be older since handforged farm items in Pennsylvania were made in traditional designs & by traditional methods well into the 19th C.
