This bowl features a sleek oblong shape that highlights the natural beauty and character of the wood. Contrasting to its uniform shape are the rim's raw edges, and a two-tone coloring that brings out the wood's rings and intricate spalting.

From the top, the opening of the bowl is slightly oval, at 8" x 7½", with its edges about a half an inch thick. At its base, it measures a round 3½" x 3½". Approximately 4¾" tall at its highest sides, and 3¾" tall at its lowest.

Created in Lanexa, Virginia by master wood crafter, Doug Dill.

These unique, one-of-a-kind Historic Wood pieces are each hand signed and numbered on the underside by the artist; Included with the bowl is a small tag with the piece's unique serial number, tree source, and its dating. Additionally, the purchase will be accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.

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.
