**First Time At Auction**
South Pacific Islands, ca. late 19th to early 20th century CE. A petite bowl carved from half of a coconut. It has a rounded base, sloping walls, a deep interior cavity, and a thin rim. The exterior of the bowl is detailed, with a decorative program of finely-incised linear and geometric motifs, and a large, four-petaled flower dominating most of the design. Covered in a light-brown patina, this is a fantastic utilitarian example from the South Pacific! Size: 5.2" W x 2.25" H (13.2 cm x 5.7 cm).
Provenance: private Denver, Colorado, USA collection; ex the late James Caswell collection, Historia Antiques, Santa Monica, California, USA
