This pouring bowl “troys” is turned out of poplar and measures 10 x 12” x 2 ¾”.
I designed this “troys” in reminiscence of other’s I have seen in Norwegian museums and books. Trøys og bolle just means a bowl with a handle and spout, or pouring bowl. I thought they would be handy for pouring whey off cottage cheese, butter, etc., but I understand they were for beer. Maybe they had more uses than we know. They are very interesting and I wanted to make and paint them with a number of designs I have yet to do.
The bowl is not very deep, so it’s quite easy to paint. I hope you will enjoy this piece. There is another Telemark project featured in “Rosemaling Styles, Study and Design” and a Hallingdal design listed under Packets.
