Elegant & Antique Wooden Gothic-flavored Bowl. Hardwood & Brass. Family Shield. France.
Certainly a design classic with brass handles and rim. Perhaps a fruit bowl or container to hold the family jewels. Obviously from a wealthy family who had this handmade with their family crest.
Look at the details and condition. Quite spectacular. Dated to the mid- to late- 1800s.
Very good condition and intact.
