This wonderful little painted wooden bowl is special. It is painted with a creamy white paint that really aged and mellowed and could be original. The paint stops a 1/2" from the top. I don't know why. It looks like the rim is painted a different color paint when it is sitting on a shelf but no it is the aged wood showing. The bowl has a big crack and after owning this bowl for a number of years and have it go from dry winter to humid summer I couldn't stand watching it expand and contract to I glued and clamped it. It has been good ever since. It is small and beautiful, cracked and mended, it is what it is, a special little bowl; solid as a rock, light as a feather and very early, 1820-30. /4 1/2" in diameter and 2 1/2" high
