~ Old Wooden Infant Bathtub ~

Found this wooden infant bathtub at a neighbor's estate sale.  This belonged to her grandmother and had been in storage for years.  I filled it today with glass oil bottles, blue canning jars, silver pieces, Staffordshire and threw in a few pine cones.

What a unique idea. I've never seen a wooden infants bath before, but I've got a thing for wooden bowls. I'm sure you'll be able to use this for lots of things. Sonia :)

I think this is really a trencer or dough bowl. Google it and you will see what I mean. I wish I had it. Paula in Oklahoma

Popped over from FJI. It looks great, but are you sure it's not a dough bowl?

I agree with the other posts that this is probably a dough bowl. I have one that was handed down in my family. My great-grandfather carved it for his bride in the 1860's. My mom told me she can remember watching her grandmother make bread dough in it then leaving it to rise. It's a huge bowl so she must have made a lot of bread!

It's such a treasure. I decorate mine for the seasons.

Love how you displayed it,though dear it is a dough trough or also known as a trencher. They still hand carve these in Mexico and are rare finds from Europe. We have one at church we use to serve breads / dinner rolls in at Sunday dinners.

you like complements your physique. put on it and look at your do it yourself within of the mirror. actually should you are tall as well as your guitar neck is slender, a choker or perhaps a collar necklace created of handmade beads is most significant for you. you'll be able to also obtain a prolonged one which could possibly be around eighteen inches in length. within of another hand, in the event that your guitar neck is short, its most significant actually should you can obtain a necklace that could possibly be about twenty-three inches long.
