About

Large vintage wooden bowl 28" diameter from Lampung, Sumatra. Merbau wood, mid-20th century. Extraordinarily large wooden bowl from Lampung, Sumatra, mid-20th century. This bowl, fashioned by hand from a single piece of merbau wood, served as an impressive container for food and fruit in feasts and celebrations. The textured outside walls beautifully represent the hand of its maker; its rich patina the many years that have passed.. The bowl is in very good condition. There has been some minor checking of the wood on the interior surface, but the piece is structurally fully sound. Size: 27.5 to 28 inch diameter by 7 inches tall.
