The base has the most missing finish, but if you look at the photos closely, you will see some other spots with missing finish and stains, but it is not extensive. It is sturdy enough to carry by the handles that are formed from the necks. It is very symmetrical for a hand carved piece. It measures a little over 2 feet long at the top by the bends of the necks, also a little higher than 14 inches at the bends of the necks and 13 inches wide from head to head. The bowl rim is approximately 13 inches wide across, 8 inches deep across the rim.
It is about 7 inches deep as a bowl, but looks and seems more voluminous due to the oval shape. I have more photos of this, if you are curious and please feel free to ask anything about this nice swan pair bowl with interesting eyes and a rim edge of feathers. Some more notes: I do not know who carved this or where, when. Thus, I cannot tell you which type of wood.I looked closely and did not see any seams, so this probably came from a large section of tree trunk. The relief is really deep in the feathers, the necks are strikingly symmetrical and flow smoothly.
There is some marks or stains in the interior of the bowl and I do not know what the finish is made with. If for some reason you would want to use the bowl for food or food display use, please keep that in mind and make sure to line it with a couple of layers of cellophane or another barrier. Although the measurements are pretty accurate, it seems much larger to my eye due to the shapes.This item is in the category "Art\Art Sculptures".
