Handmade Historic Pecan Bowl #241
This finely turned pecan bowl was sourced from the Mount Vernon Pecan Tree circa 1850. The pecan tree appears prominently in virtually all exterior graphic and photographic images of Mount Vernon. This tree stood next to the Mansion with branches soaring to 145 feet and posed a direct threat to the Mansion and the priceless objects contained therein. The approximately 50-ton tree was removed in January 2014 and the wood held in safekeeping on the Mount Vernon estate.
This truly unique soft edge bowl is approximately 4” tall, 5" in diameter, with a 3.5” base. Please note the uneven striated wood grain marks in a wide variety of wood tones and several streaks of turquoise which add visual interest and color.
