This beautiful and very functional bowl has been carved from a single piece of quality black fossil marble. The artisans have kept the detail of a fantastic orthoceras specimen in the middle of the bowl and carved out either side to form a two part bowl. boat shaped, it would be great for separating all kinds of complementary things. It would also add a wonderful talking point on any table or living area.
Unlike much material from this area, this piece has been hand polished to a high shine WITHOUT a varnish finish.
