Bowl is made from Maple wood with an interesting grain and dark lines from the spalting of the wood. Spalting is what happens to dead and dyeing trees. This is natures start to the decaying process.
People have asked me what to do with a 4 footed bowl and i have one on my dresser for change, others use them to hold keys and other small items so they will not roll way on them. My brother in law who lives in Miami said they would be good for a dice game. All I ask is that you use it and enjoy using it.
This bowl has been finished with with a nontoxic combination of oil and wax that protects, preserves and enhances the natural beauty of the wood.
Wooden Bowls can be hand washed with warm soapy water. You must dry them after washing, do not soak them. Never place a wood bowl in the dishwasher.
I put a penny in the bowl when i took the pictures to give you a visual reference for the size of the bowl.
Bowl measures about 4.25“ wide and 2“tall.
