This bowl is made from a small section of Bradford Pear log from middle TN and a piece of Cherry grown in central FL. The cherry lid will likely darken with age more than the pear will, thus producing a contrast with the bowl. The pear shaped finial is made of Walnut but, just to be clear, is not what Bradford Pear fruit looks like. The bowl measures 6 1/2 inches wide by 4 inches high plus the finial. It is finished with satin lacquer.
