Handmade Historic White Oak Bowl #019
The majestic white oak stood at George Washington’s Mount Vernon for about 240 years until it fell on a windless night in November 2019. It had witnessed the passing of history as Civil War soldiers carved a cross and star in its bark. The tree was 115 feet tall and 12 feet around.
Each handmade piece crafted by Doug Dill in Lanexa, Virginia is numbered and signed. To honor the history of the tree, the wood turner has etched a star and cross into the bottom of each piece.
This beautiful round bowl features a distinctive raw edge, mesmerizing uneven striated wood grain marks in various wood tones. Size is approximately 6 ½” x 7” with sides ranging from 3 ¼” x 4 ¼” in height and a 2 ½” wide base.
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. To protect the integrity of the pieces in our collection, these historic wood pieces cannot be returned or exchanged. Not suitable for use with water. Handmade in the USA.
