Spectacular Colonial Serving Ladle

Spectacular Colonial Serving Ladle

An extremely well executed Colonial period wooden ladle in original surface.


Carved from the block of American maple wood and executed gracefully in form. A square shafted and tapered and curved neck terminates in a tapered handle both with fine chamfered edges. The bowl is executed beautifully with sensitive attention to proportionally appropriate size showing a delicate, yet generous shape with superb kerf and tool marks remaining on both the interior and exterior.


Very likely formed as a substitute for an identical form in silver, the emulation is extremely well executed.


Remains in fine condition with a superb surface. Presents well with mellow color.


New England origin. Ca. 1790-1830. 20"L.
