Object Name Bowl, Chopping
Description Wooden chopping bowl for food preparation. It is oblong in shape, with a gradual slope toward the deep center of the bowl. Cut marks on the inside indicate heavy use. The hole on one end is likely for hanging on a nail, a slight crack above that hole is the only crack in the bowl. No other significant cracks, chips, or checks in the wood. This bowl was used by the Huggins family while living in the Factor's House at Fort Nisqually from the 1860s-1906, after the Hudson's Bay Company had left. The cooking was done in a detached kitchen building. The bowl measures 22 inches long by 12 inches wide, and measures 4 1/2 inches deep.
