This elegant bowl is made up of several reclaimed wine barrel staves formed into a graceful upturned bowl on a stand. The stand is a single reversed shorter barrel stave.
You can display this unique item as a presentation piece or use it as fruit bowl. Put a small glass bowl in the middle and use it as a platter for cheese and crackers or for bread.
Finished in a food-safe tung oil, this elegant bowl will grace any table or sideboard.
I have preserved the character of the wood. With a graceful upward curve, the top of the bowl is coloured a deep purple from the red wine that the barrel held for years, and the bottom shows the greyish age of the outside of the barrel with bands created by the metal barrel hoops. The foot is a smaller stave with a reverse curve.
Overall size is approximately 18 inches long by 5 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches high. Every piece is unique based on the barrels staves used so all sizes are approximate. This item is also available in a 24 inch and 36 inch version.
This is an excellent give for yourself or any wine enthusiast.
