Historic White Oak Platter #001
This expertly crafted platter measures approximately 15” x 16” with a 5 ½” base. It is about 2” deep and features an exceptionally attractive raw edge that stands out in contrast to the beautiful white oak smooth platter. Wood graining is on full display in the center of the piece.
On November 4, 2019, the white oak tree dating to Washington’s time, circa 1780, fell due to overly saturated grounds. The tree was located away from public access and had lived through the civil war. The wood from this tree was sourced and used to create unique pieces such as this bowl by master wood crafter Doug Dill in Lanexa, Virginia.
This unique item is signed and numbered on the bottom; a small card with the number and tree source and date is included. Your bowl is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
Please note that there are no discounts available for this item.
