A fine example of these collectable bowls known as "Sussex Logs"....the reasoning behind the name is that according to Edward Pinto in his book Treen and Other Wooden Bygones, he discusses the theory that the bowls emanated from a large farm located in Sussex, and were manufatured from the 18th century onwards, continuing the tradition at this particular farmhouse..... see section IV, page 89, plate 84. They were typically cut across the end grain and this one is made of Elm and has gained a rich colour and is in nice condition.
