Description

Shallow dish or trencher carved from one piece of wood. Rectangular shape with sides that slope toward a smaller, rectangular base. The sides are carved with the short ends slightly higher than the long sides. The short ends are also somewhat damaged along their edges. Undecorated but with dark discoloration on the interior. A thin groove is carved on the interior roughly halfway between the rim and the base. Similar to NA5720.
