The bowl history is very interesting. I wonder how this has continued into the more recent times. For example, I have an 1687 RI but assume that it has a SMC bowl and not the period-correct second generation cloth, the paint has come off in places and it is bright white below. Also, I assume that with the overseas AX models their bowls are made right there in China or Korea. Then with the most recent New Hartford/new small shop Adamas they state hand-laid bowl as a feature, and it would be good to know more details about the process they are using now.


The difference between a cloth bowl and an SMC bow is easy to spot. The SMC bowls have the characteristic molded webbing around the neck/body joint. Hand-laid cloth bowls will have a wood neck block.

My 50th Anniversary CL has a cloth bowl and wood neck block. The neck is a bolt-on joint.
