Handmade Historic White Oak Bowl No. 30

SKU 31079

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. Your bowl is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.

This large oblong-shaped bowl features a flat smooth edge, mesmerizing uneven striated wood grain marks in darker tones, and several decorative inlay strips for character. Note the turquoise fillers in knots to add visual interest and color to this heavy 3lbs wood bowl.
