Handmade Historic White Oak Bowl No. 36
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 White Oak tree, circa 1780s, 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 beautiful oblong bowl features a raw natural and angled edge. Truly a one-of-a-kind bowl, beautifully displays prominent striations, graining and showcases various color wood tones from light to dark.
