Early Turned Pedestal Compote
This stunning pedestal compote, also known as a tazza, is finely turned out of a single piece of pine. It has a deep-dished top and retains its original worn black painted surface. It is quite large, with a height of 10" and an impressive diameter of 18 1/4" to 18 3/4" (slightly out of round). Possibly southern or mid-Atlantic states. Minor surface abrasions and a tiny amount of old insect damage consistent with age and use.
