Historic Pecan Bowl #118
This finely turned pecan bowl was created by Doug Dill, master wood crafter in Lanexa, Virginia. Wood for the bowl was sourced from the Mount Vernon Pecan Tree circa 1850. The pecan appears prominently in virtually all exterior graphic and photographic images of Mount Vernon. The pecan tree stood next to the Mansion with branches soaring to 145 feet and posed a direct threat to the Mansion and the priceless objects contained therein. The approximately 50 ton tree was removed in January 2014 and the wood held in safekeeping on the Mount Vernon estate. This unique item is signed and numbered on the bottom; a small card with the number and tree source and date is included. The natural edged bowl is approximately 10 ¼" x 9 ½" with sides ranging in height from 3 ¾" to 6". 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.
