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.
