We are pleased to offer this handsome lot of antique & early wooden mixing bowls including pre 1910 6" and 10" hand turned examples, as well as 2 machined 1915-1930 10.5", and the fine 12.5 x 3.75" tall Parrish signed dough bowl. We also have a 5" x 4.5" hard wood scoop that has a curved end for resting on pot rim. The Parrish bowl is somewhat of an enigma, as the company is reputed to have been located either in Northern Indiana, or in the Chicago area. Along with Parrish, another bowl maker of excellent repute was Munising. It is said that a stock of Parrish bowls was discovered in an abandoned building in the 1970s, and supposition was that this was the original plant which had closed during the depression. Supposedly it was located in Indiana. Parrish bowls sometimes are marked with the name in a triangle on the bottom, but one of the main differences seems to be the size of the bottom of the bowl, with the Parrish seating rim having a larger circumference than other manufacturers. Total weight of the lot is 7#.
