Exquisite large hand carved oak SS bread bowl with a large carved sun wheel in the bowl’s center. In typical fashion the rim of the bowl is carved with the words ‘Heil Dem Gast Der Zu Uns Kommt – Edda’ – ‘Hail to the guest that comes to us’ from the Norse ‘Edda’, a welcoming message to visiting guests. Bears a large carved letter ‘W’ on the bottom, possibly indicating this is a work of the ‘Werkschar’ or work group. Meant to be sitting on a table or chest. Not only a decorative item. Approx. 12.75 inches in diameter and 2.75 inches height with a thickness of 1 inch. No wood splitting in excellent condition.
