Barber Bowl ca: 1800


The barber’s bowl was once an essential tool for a barber shaving his customers. The semicircular opening in the rim permits it to fit closely against the neck of the person being shaved. The semicircular notch on the rim may also be used for resting the patients arm during the process of bloodletting which was performed by barber- surgeons of the time. The ribbed decorative edge is unique. The bowl has been repaired which reflects its extended use. (ASTK)
