Irish Dairy Bowl With Associated Utensils

Ref# DPTR-4617
An Irish sycamore turned dairy bowl with associated utensils.

This well used 19th century dairy bowl is offered with a pair of butter pats and a cow motif butter stamp of beech. These were certainly used alongside one another however the pats and stamp are later in date, circa early 20th century.

Sycamore supposedly did not taint food and was thought to have antibacterial properties hence its common use in bowl construction.

Extensive traces of worm are present throughout although all are treated and structurally sound. The bowl has wear at either side perhaps from the way in which it was stored on a makeshift rack or shelf.

From Co. Tyrone or Co. Fermanagh.

Dimensions of bowl:
Height 10cm
Diameter 42cm
