Samoan 8 Legged Kava Bowl 19th Century
This Samoan 8 legged Kava bowl is about 15 3/4" wide and just over 8" tall. The 1 1/4" wide rim's underside is sloped gradually instead of the later type with a flat squared off lip. The heavy dark reddish brown bowl has nice adze markings on it's underside and along the legs. Three of the back legs each have a glued break and the two holes for the suspension cord on the front lug are slightly uneven but I don't think that it takes away from the piece as they appear to be original to it.
