I love this old bowl set and scooped it up right away when I saw it in one of the booths at the sale. The lady I bought it from said it is an old butter bowl. Doing a bit of research I have found it referred to as a dough bowl or butter bowl. I just love its rustic and worn look!
The butter was churned and then put into the larger bowl and the paddle was used to work the rest of the buttermilk out......I am not sure what the smaller bowl was used for? I sure am glad they came as a set though cause I think they are perfect together. Does anyone else have any information on these primitive bowls, when they could date back to, if you have any in your collection?
Great autumn colors..
Of course, I always wonder who was the person who used this item?
How many people were in the family that enjoyed the home made butter?
It was probably a chore done very often and took time and effort...
Can't decide what to fill my lovely bowl with....pumpkins
Or a mix of harvest colors..
