Jefferson undoubtedly ranked trees at the top of his hierarchical chart of favorite garden plants. Visitors to Monticello were often given tours of the grounds, which included a rambling survey of what one guest described as Jefferson's "pet trees." This interestingly unique bowl has been created using a Red Maple that once stood on the grounds at Monticello. Signed and numbered by the artist, Dennis Hippen. 2 ¾”h x 9 ½” diameter.
