Item specifics





Originating Region:


This is an early 1900’s Art & Crafts/ Art Nouveau Pokerwork Australiana Floral Design Nut Bowl. It is a stunning piece with a beautifully drawn Pokerwork on the inside and outside.

The pokerwork nut bowl is an original piece which has been turned on a lath. The bowl has a turned brass cracking centre disc were the nuts are placed. The bowl patterns replicates the texture of the timber and warm colours that are used in the design.  The painting is of Australian gum flowers and leaves.  The bowl has smooth curving sides to prevent nut shells from spilling. There is a wooden mallet with the bowl.

The bowl and hammer are in a used but excellent condition,with a few tiny marks around the edge.  The mallet has a lighter colour than the bowl. All the designs are clear and bright. The inside of the bowl has a number of dents and scuffs were nuts have been cracked. 

Poker work was a popular art form in Australia from 1900 to the 1930’s. It appeared as a decorative form of design on a variety of household items made from wood such as nut bowls, vases, spoons, coat hangers,bowls, egg cups, coasters, doily covers and trays. In recent years the art hashad something of a revival.

If you are looking for a retro decorated nut bowl THIS IS IT– one of the nicest you will find!

Please look at the photos and read the description to acquaint yourself with the bowl before making a bid.
