Handmade Historic White Oak Bowl #201
Doug Dill, a master wood crafter from Lanexa, Virginia is an artist who uses wood sourced from fallen trees to create very special collector pieces. The wood for this bowl was sourced from a Mount Vernon white oak tree circa 1780 from the estate. On Tuesday, July 24, 2018, the white oak tree dating to Washington’s time fell due to overly saturated grounds. The tree was located away from public access and had lived through the civil war.
The bowl is finished with a raw edge and is approximately 9 ½” x 11 ½” with sides ranging in height from 3” to 5”. Decorative wood stitching added by the artist helps stabilize the bowl and a shot of bright turquoise from metal oxidation add visual interest.
This unique item is signed and numbered on the bottom; a small card with the number and tree source and date is included.
Your bowl is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. Please note that there are no discounts available for this item.
Handmade in the USA.
