Well, this is a set of four (4) 19th century, Lignum Vitea, also called "Ironwood", lawn bowls that are now more typically made of a hard, plastic, composite material. This wood is a very hard, dense, wood that had many uses, including covering it in powdered industrial diamonds to cut gems. Now THAT'S one dense wood! Lignum Vitea was called the "Wood of Life" because the resin was used to treat coughs and arthritis.
