These great little bowls are hand carved from one piece of Teak. They are lovingly shaped and smoothed and sanded and finished with great care. The inside is finished with food grade mineral oil which protects the woods surface and preserves the natural colour of the Teak. The outside is painted a solid contrasting white which is very bold and smooth, and the woods natural edge is retained to form the lip of the bowl. A bowl like this is great for serving snacks or small salads or any other nibbles. Keep a few of them handy around the home.
