Unusual Weaving Bowl Attributed to Bergen SOLD
This bowl is cut in a pattern very similar to JD Bergen’s Washington pattern. It features a variety of motifs weaving throughout the bowl.
Long, streaming bands of cane wrap around the bowl, crossing over and under two other motifs. One of these motifs is a band of hobnail, while another is a thin, tusk surrounded on each side by notching. The Tusk is remarkable-maybe the longest tusk I’ve ever seen and cut curved- as opposed to straight. The pattern provides a triangular field in the center of the bowl filled with a32-point hobstar. All of the cutting is extremely tight and precise.
The bowl is in excellent condition and measures a large 9 1/4″ wide and 4″ tall.
