Norwegian Drinking Bowl

<< >>
Description
This Norwegian drinking bowl is carved in the form of a goose and features rosemaling, or decorative floral folk painting originating from the low-lands of Norway. Bowls were typically carved from a single piece of birch wood and featured incised decoration produced through chip carving. Due to the revival of Norwegian folk art in the 19th century, kasas were widely reproduced for use as decoration.
