S/5617 Antique Treen 19th Century Lignum Vitae Wool Bowl

A 19th century lignum vitae wool bowl in both heart and sap wood, which follows the traditional shape, almost all made of lignum vitae for their weight, which kept them in a stable position. They were used for placing a ball of wool, and with a smooth interior allowing the wool to unwind when in use without becoming tangled. The whole has an excellent colour and patination.
