Mid Century Black Couroc Bowl with Wood and Brass Inlay Owl Design


Shipping to United States: Free

Made by Couroc of Monterey, California probably in the 1960's, this round decorative bowl has an adorable stylized owl in the middle. Couroc made their pieces in black satin phenolic which is supposed to be impervious to alcohol. Not sure why this was a selling feature back then but apparently there was a lot of alcohol being sloshed around. Each piece is hand inlaid with brass, wood and a variety of other materials depending on the design. This owl design appears to be printed on wood and then inlaid along with brass for the eyes and the branch in the phenolic.

It measures 7 3/4" across. Wipe clean with mild soapy water if needed and wipe dry with a microfiber cloth. Do not put in the dishwasher. Made by Couroc in California, USA. Original foil label intact but ink is a bit worn as seen in photo.
