Gilded Sandalwood Bowl
This is a gorgeous Sandalwood bowl! The interior of the bowl and the accent stripe on the outside is filled in 23karat gold leaf. The sandalwood itself has a very subtle grain with an inviting, warm reddish brown color that shifts and changes as the light moves over it, an iridescence. The 23karat gold leaf is beautiful with a gentle texture and an incredible sheen. It glows in the sunlight! Also, as this is sandalwood, there is this wonderful aroma that the oils in the wood produce! Overall, it approximately 7.5" in diameter and 2.75" high. The gold leaf is sealed with shellac and the entire bowl was then finished with wax.
