Large Early Oval Tub
This large bentwood oval tub has two hand-carved applied handles that are attached with early rose-head nails. The lapped bentwood is secured with forged and rose head nails as well. This tub was most likely used for washing. There is a notched area on the inside of each handle that probably held a wooden cross bar for washing. Late 18th c. Wonderful patina.
Measuring 21 1/2" wide by 19 1/4" deep by 7 1/2" tall (not counting the handles).
