I found this teak bowl in the local charity resale store yesterday. I didn't want to buy it without all our "teak geeks" approval. It has a slight flea bite on the rim. I don't carry a tape measure, but it is setting on a filthy Knoll Pollack chair. I took a snappy of its belly, I can't read the makers mark. I'll post a pic of that, too.

Advice and love,

Aunt Mark

Buy it. It is beautiful and in my experience rather unique in form.

Nice looking bowl-if the price is right, go for it!

It's only $28.00 USD.
Here's the bottom...I take lousy snappies. The paper label says Made in Denmark. The stamped part looks to be a word/name about 7 or 8 characters long. The first 4 letters appear to be HOLB...and I can't read the rest. The foil label says something about teakwood and Denmark. I'll go and grab it this morning...and probably shove it into the back of a closet...and re-donate it.

Super thanks for all of the guidance.

Your Aunt Mark

No idea on the maker etc....
No idea on the maker etc. But it looks very nice to me.

It's barely morning and I need another drink. I wonder how mescal on the rocks would taste served in it? I could pour the whole bottle in and a couple or three rocks.

ps
the HOLB...or MOLB.... are ingraved above the DENMARK, and they are engraved along the rim of the bowl. Its just not a clear enough marking into the wood.

Well,
I just did an exhaustive search of Google images (like, to the point where it asks you if you want to see more, which is when I became exhausted) and I did not see it there. So I'm calling it----

rare prototype! Worth $$$$$ at gunpoint!

It certainly
doesn't say Band Saw, so I think you are good to go. Mark, it's 28 USD. If you use it just one time for a nice salad at a dinner party, you've made your money back AND will have garnered lots of compliments on something besides your fashion sense. Well worth it.

IT'S LOVELY!
Buy it :)

(I have an almost identical one- which isn't marked, but I was told was Finnish)

Many thanks to all of you!
I stopped into the resale store after breakfast, and bought it on sale (???) for $20.00 USD. I forgot and left in in the car this morning, but I will bring it into my abode when returning from dinner.

So many thank you' s...drinks are on my tab.

Hillbilly hugs,

Aunt Mark

It is made out of one solid piece of teak (as opposed to some sort of staved construction), which means it was made as a higher end piece, in order to justify the much larger amount of needed raw teak. Aesthetically this gives it very nice grain patterns. The designer aspect of the market may have distorted the value such that it is currently not worth as much as something that was originally made for a lower price point. But you won't know that until you decipher the marks on the bottom. And often higher end construction correlates with higher end design.

I have a teak bowl that I keep full of headphones (Sennheiser 555 and 585, life-changing things), adaptors and cables.

The bowl is bedside!
It's my first teak bowl. I'll keep my teeth in it.

Better photo of the bottom? I'd like to know how to find another like that. Aside from randomly looking at a trillion teak bowls.

Your teeth should look great in there. If everything tastes like tropical hardwood, you will know why.

The odd thing is that....
when I lay my tender head on the bed and look at the grain, sometimes I see an image of Elvis, and sometimes I see Jesus.

As always,

S&K Holboll, Denmark, they made "household articles" in the seventies.

Mark's is a little deep for
a salad ? Beautiful. Unusual to see care instructions attached to the bottom ?

Good photo, Mark. How did you take it ? What camera gets that close ?

You win a canned ham, onno! Thank you.
and darling SDR, I used an old Sony Cybershot (that I once dropped out of a car window..) and I'm not sure of the pixels..or whatever. Snappy was snapped atop a Richard Schultz ottoman.

Flora and Fauna to all,

Canned ham? I prefer strawberry cake.

Thanks for the snappy so I know who made it. I was hoping maybe something remotely similar might come up by searching the maker's name. No such luck.

Picking up this side/tray table with the s & k holboll denmark mark today. There is very little info anywhere that I can find on this maker. Anyone have any other pieces by them they’d like to share? Or any info?

Thanks!!
