S/5854 Antique Treen 19th Century Set of Four Small Lignum Vitae Wool Bowls

An unusual set of four small lignum vitae wool bowls of traditional form, which were almost always 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. All of them have a pleasing colour and retain a patination.

1 in. (4.5 cm.) High
