Historic Red Oak Bowl #SL019
Wood for this bowl was sourced from a Red Oak tree, circa 1798. This fallen tree stood over the present day Slave Memorial at George Washington's Mount Vernon until 2016.
The round bowl is 10” in diameter and 3 ½” deep on a base which is 4 ¼” in diameter.
The entire top edge of the bowl is inlaid with crushed turquoise stone.
This finely turned bowl was created by Doug Dill, master wood crafter in Lanexa, Virginia. This unique item is signed and numbered on the bottom; a small card with the number and tree source and date is included. The 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.
