This stunning bowl has been carved from a block of black orthoceras bearing stone. Superb fossil detail on both sides. The side of the bowl features a beautiful ammonite raised in relief. Coming through to the reverse are multiple orthoceras fossils. A functional piece it would also double as 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.
