Historic Wood from The Underground Railroad

Historic Wood from The Underground Railroad makes this bowl a one of a kind with tons of character. It is not often to find wood with these gorgeous patterns. The wood is Mulberry from a tree that fell in a storm on the Underground Railroad Trail in Nyack, NY.  Just think of the history possibly witnessed by this tree.  The butterflies are airbrushed and represent a journey to freedom. This bowl is perfect as a centerpiece for your table. The size is 7 1/2 inch diameter by 4 high. My signature is on the base along with a notation about the wood.

The size is 8-inch diameter by 2 1/2 inches high.


Handmade on a wood lathe Historic Wood from The Underground Railroad bowl features beautiful grain and colorful age ring markings.

Picture this gorgeous food-safe bowl filled with candy on your kitchen table.  If you are constantly misplacing your keys and cell phone this bowl is perfect as a cell phone holder or jewelry keeper. Just drop the items into the bowl when you get home and your life will be simplified.
Signed by the artist, Alan Adler, on base… that would be me.

Care for Historic Wood Bowl

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
