    Hi all.
    My latest purchase is this 10" diameter wood lidded, three footed bowl
    I am assuming it was for serving rice?
    It looks to be pretty old, and I can't find anything like it.

    Beautiful bowl! I’m having a hard time getting any clues about age. My guess would be more mid century up to maybe 70s/80s rather than as old as Meiji era. Just a guess though.

    It looks newer and shiny now because I spent two hours cleaning it and polishing the lacquer. It was dull as dirt when I got it home.

    Thanks for the quick reply AJ.
    My Facebook group pretty much dates it the same
    So possibly 1940s 50s

    Maybe even into the 60s. It is a beauty.

    I can see that. It's definitely beauty over age on this one so the term Vintage works well for listing.

    I'm sure it will sell, it has everything going for it. And you did a great job polishing it.
