A nice old piece of political Folk Art!




 

Large early 19th century American Elm hand hewed bowl with handles. It measures 33” x 18” x 7” deep. What makes this guy even better are the make-do repairs that it has.

The woman that we bought this from bought it over 45 years ago while driving down Delaware Avenue in Buffalo. It was in the window of a very exclusive children's clothing shop that was going out of business. She stopped and asked if they would sell it to her and lucky for her they said yes.
