By popular request we are doing this beautiful chip carved shallow bowl decorated with Jo Sonja’s variation of a wedding procession in Vest Agder style. At the southern tip of Norway is the area or county known as Vest Agder (West Agder). The folk art of this area is based on floral baroque. With straighter scrolls, almost like palm trees, ending in a profusion of flowers, leaves, and small teardrops or comma strokes. This is an area where we can see many examples of the wedding party painted around the outer edge of the inside of the bowl. A few drunks were usually in attendance as the wedding party progressed.

Chip carved shallow bowl is 20” in diameter
