Oversized and ideal for serving bread or fruit, or for displaying seasonal arrangements, this authentic recycled oak server first saw duty aging fine wine. Doing so, it gained character without losing any of its attributes, and when set down on your table, it transforms any setting. Made in USA.
V0181,Wine Barrel Stave Bread Bowl,
A staggering amount of wine barrels are thrown away every year. In California alone, 200,000 hand-crafted oak wine barrels made from 200- to 300-year-old trees are discarded by wineries annually. We support the creative reuse of the barrels and are proud to extend the lives of such noble oak. There are artists, crafters, makers, builders, carpenters and allother types of artisans right here in our own backyards, and our hope is that when you think of beautiful, handcrafted products from across the globe, you think of them too. Buying domestically can be more eco-conscious, as it reduces transportation needs and consequently the energy and natural resources expended in the process; this makes us huge proponents of shopping locally.Because these items are created from genuine recycled wine barrels, beautiful deep purple or red colors often appear on one side of wood. The color is a result of the wine it once held and you may even be able to detect a remaining aroma.
