This stunning black walnut bowl is beautifully turned and finished, with lots of contrasting color and texture. The grain of the dark heartwood is particularly well-figured and the lighter sapwood not only provides a different color, but, due to the marvelous worm holes and tunnels, adds fascinating designs, along with inherent cracks and crevices. The upper edge has the original bark that's been burned and blackened to add another interesting layer.
This bowl is 15 1/2 inches long, 7 1/2 inches at the widest and stands 4 inches tall at one end, 4 1/2 inches tall at the other. It weighs 2 1/2 pounds and sits firmly and steadily on its 3 1/2 inch by 7 inch oval base. The condition is excellent and it's a vintage natural centerpiece that looks terrific in any room with any decor.
