Set of Horn Bowls
Made by hand in England from natural horn, no two of these bowls are alike. Hand polishing is used to finish the bowls, giving them a lovely warm, glowing lustre.
Horn is a wonderful natural material that with the right skill and expertise can be sculpted by hand into these beautiful bowls, which are both desirable and functional.

Hand carved by skilled craftsman in England, the company we work with to produce these bowls has been working with this natural material for 250 years. Only a horner with years of experience is able to mould the softened horn by hand, using a technique that man has used for centuries.
