- LARGE Wooden Hand-carved Dough Bread Bowl Farmhouse w/Handmade Hen Decoration. The bread bowl is about 11" x 20" oval.It also has four little plastic eggs and some "straw" that looks to be made from paper stuffing. My grandmother made this hen with extra clothes as she was quite a seamstress.
My grandmother had this sitting on her counter and used it often. This was my grandmother's, and it got great use. She was born in 1912 and married young. This is why I think it might be close to being an antique because she woke up early to make biscuits for my granddad (who worked the farm) and then started on lunch biscuits after that was done, and so on.
I assume this was used in general from the late 1920 to the 1960s (when my grandad died so she didn't cook as much). I have so many of her things but just can't keep them all. Of course, the bowl has wear but looks so very nice overall.
