Tikal Wood Serving Bowl
Clean lines, modern pedestal base, and three of the most beautiful woods we’ve ever seen. These serving bowls are the definition of versatility, perfect as a styling or serving piece. Beyond the design, the grain of each of the woods is what makes these bowls truly stand out – the grain is super rich, just as the makers intended so as to showcase the beauty of the native Guatemalan woods.
Handmade by a group of artisans in the Petén Jungle of Guatemala, each piece is made from sustainably sourced wood that’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). All made start to finish in a fair-trade working environment.
We recommend mixing and matching sizes to style as a set of two (or three).

Large: 12” Diameter x 5”H
Available in Granadillo, Mahogany, or White Teak woods; Granadillo & Mahogany are finished with a sustainably sourced beeswax; White Teak is unfinished.

Made with higher standards. We preserve artisan craft by paying wages that average 2x the fair trade requirement.
All of our wood bowls are food safe.
Mahogany & Granadillo: Hand wash with warm water and soap. Dry immediately. To maintain the natural luster of the wood, condition occasionally with a food-safe oil such as coconut oil.
White Teak: This piece is not treated with a beeswax finish so there's a higher risk for staining. Please refrain from using highly pigmented foods (berries, etc.) to avoid any undesired staining. We recommend wiping with a damp cloth to clean.
I have waited for a while for this beautiful mahogany bowl to be available and the wait was well worth it. I just throw random things that’s causing the clutter in my apartment. It’s a temporary place for things before they need to be put away, and I never knew that helps my sanity! It even feels like a perfect match to my grandpa’s antique bar that has a charm of craftsmanship from 40s. Glad to have got it. Thank you.

Best, - The Citizenry Team
Is it nice? Yes. Is it worth $95 for a small tiny bowl? No. That being said I didn’t spend a dime on it because I used the $100 credit that was given. I only purchased it because I had the credit and it was going to expire.
