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.
