Description

Antique/Vintage Wood Dough Bowls, Set of 3, Farmhouse Wood Bowls, Wedding Gift, Rustic Kitchen Decor, Primitive Wood Bowls, Munising Bowls, Munising 2nd

Set of 3 mismatched nesting wood bowls, 2 of the 3 have the "Munising" logo on the bottom, one says "Munising", the other "Munising 2nd." More on that brand below.

This would be a beautiful wedding gift or the perfect addition to the farmhouse kitchen! Fill the large bowl up with fruit and showcase it as a centerpiece on that beautiful farmhouse kitchen table!

An antique nesting set like this is hard to come by.
They measure approximately:
9" x 8" x 1 7/8 (small "Munising" Bowl)
11" x 10 1/4" x 3 " (Medium hand chiseled bowl)
13 3/4 x 12 1/2 x 4 1/4" (large "Munising 2nd" bowl)

What do I love about this set? Besides EVERYTHING (it's very tempting to keep this set!), I love their unique shape and how they nest, I love the different sizes, each perfect for something else. I love how they look warn and used, the scrapes and scratches. I love the big knot on the underside of the largest bowl that looks like its about to crack, but it's not. I love the chiseled marks in the medium bowl which makes me think about the person who carved it for hours and hours. I love everything about them. Seriously!

I learned a lot on the internet about Munising bowls from the famous Martha Stewart who answered a question re: Munising bowls and she gave a nice concise history of the company and how to care for these antique wooden bowls. I would like to share it here, borrowed from www.articles.curant.com:

July 16, 2010|By MARTHA STEWART
Q: I have a large wooden bowl marked "Munising." What can you tell me about it, and how can I restore it?

A: Munising bowls hail from their namesake town, nestled on the South Bay of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Workers at Munising Woodenware Co., in business from 1911 to 1955, machine-lathed each vessel out of hardwood, usually maple, from the forests nearby. The factory produced other household items, such as butter molds, spoons and breadboards. The goods were sold at department stores, where many found their way onto wedding registries. During World War II, the factory fashioned 50 million tent stakes for the Army and the Marines. Of the many items the company made, the bowls were among the few types of pieces branded with its name.
Today, Munising bowls surface in antiques stores and at online auctions. The salad bowls, 10 inches or more in diameter, are usually unadorned or painted a solid color on their exterior; some are footed. The largest vessels, at least 17 inches wide and unpainted, are dough bowls. Carved from the broadest trunks, these are more valuable and harder to come by.

In the 1940s, the factory began painting some with decorations, such as fruit or flowers. According to Karen Boaz, owner of Red Barn Antiques in nearby Au Train, artisans weren't allowed to sign their work, but many hid their initials in the painted swirls.

To care for a Munising bowl, coat its surface with food-grade mineral oil, and let it get absorbed for six to eight hours. Repeat until oil no longer permeates the wood, and wipe off excess. Treat the bowl every month, and keep it out of direct sunlight and away from extreme heat and cold. If you use the vessel to serve or prepare food, avoid any that may stain the wood, such as beets or berries. To clean it, wash it with hot water and gentle dishwashing liquid. Do not let it soak. Dry it, and then reapply oil.
Thank you, Martha Stewart, for sharing your wisdom!

I hope you learned something too!
