This finished edge bowl was crafted from wood sourced from a Mount Vernon Hemlock tree circa 1791. The Canadian Hemlock towered over the serpentine path by the upper garden gate during George and Martha Washington’s lifetime. On March 2, 2018 a severe storm struck down this historic tree.
This free-form bowl has an interesting, sloping, oval shape and visible grain on the interior. It is 10 ½” long, 8 ½” wide and 9” tall. Created by master wood crafter Doug Dill of Lanexa, Virginia. Not suitable for use with water.
This unique collector’s piece is signed and numbered on the bottom and a small card with the tree source and date is included. The vase is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. Please note that this one-of-a kind item is not eligible for a discount.
