Looks like a minor delay for QC issues. Can’t wait to get it and I’m grateful for Brett enduring absolute perfection of his products.

This is truly a beautiful bowl. But if you are looking to do perform the original Roy Benson routine, there are several features missing from it that falls short.

First, Brett's bowl in a fine one. The missing features no way inhibits you to do your own routine. I just prefer the Roy Benson version.
Sending you an email now.

Just for completeness, I believe this is the Mad Jake Bowl from many moons ago.

Steve,
that was the regular Benson bowls he released for the Don Alan Vernon of the Benson Bowl. He also made 6 Roy Benson Bowls that were to the Specs in the Starlight
Roy Benson book. out of exotic hardwoods with Canary wood wands. I have one of the brass ones like you.

I thought this was copper, but I’m certainly no expert. In any case, it’s a great prop.

Dad made them in a variety of finishes, copper, brass, plated etc. There were only 2 bowls made that were silver/gold.

I just received an email from Brett Sherwood and he made substantial changes to the bowl to make it function more like the original Benson Bowl - it has a pedestal bottom now. It should ship out in 6-8 weeks.
