What a fantastic idea for a gift! Drakes Pride have taken an antique bowl and inset a clock into it.
Lignum Vitae is the hardest and heaviest wood in existence and for hundreds of years bowls (and a lots more besides) were made from this most ancient of timbers. These days, Lignum Vitae is on the restricted list of tropical timbers and very hard to come by but why waste the beautiful old bowls that have been left behind?
A clock has been fitted into the old bowl and then the whole item made good and polished. In our view the Lignum Vitae bowl would make a great present alone but the idea of fitting a clock into it is certainly a novel and unique idea for a gift.
The clock is held in place by 3 spring grips. To adjust the time and so forth, it can be carefully pulled out by gripping the rim.
This item is only available sporadically as and when Lignum Vitae bowls turn up. Because such bowls are not common these days, it's difficult to predict availability but if it's showing as in stock, it will be in our warehouse ready to go...
