11.75"W X 1.875"D While this bowl is quite shallow, I do classify it as a bowl as there is a curve to the bottom. The spalting (dark lines) confined to the lighter colored wood is part of the decaying process of the tree once it has died or the tree severely stressed. Once the wood is dried however the spalting is checked and does not progress.
The finish on the piece is food safe so the bowl may be used as a serving dish or a fruit bowl. If used as a serving dish, wooden utensils are recommended to avoid damage to the finish. The finish does not require replenishment as needed when natural oils are used. The bowl may be washed in warm soapy water, rinsed, dried and stored. It is not intended for use for prolonged refrigerated food storage.
