LARGE AMERICAN TRENCHER

Large 19th century trencher found in the midwest.  This early piece of woodenware may well be native American.  It measures 22 1/2" in length and is 12 1/2" across.  A depth of near 6" sets it apart from the typical trencher.  The 'V' shaped loss likely occurred when the bowl was made as it shows the same patina as the rest of the piece.  The trencher's surface is 2nd to none with a soft to the touch feel and a near polished appearance.  Color comes from the trencher's original natural red dye.
