Missouri Plain Folk
Early 19th century trencher in original red wash. Possibly Indiana or Ohio. This is a larger trencher with thicker sides. It measures 22 1/2" end to end and 12 1/2" wide. This hand hewn bowl measures a full 6" deep. A 'V' shaped notch in one end appears to be original to the piece. It was likely where a knot was removed from the wood. The trencher has a wonderful soft feel to the touch from a hundred plus years of use. Its patina is second to none.
