Handmade Historic Hemlock Vase #190
This unique, free-form vase was crafted from wood sourced from a Mount Vernon Hemlock tree circa 1791. The Canadian Hemlock towered over the serpentine path by the upper garden gate during George and Martha Washington’s lifetime. On March 2, 2018, a severe storm struck down this historic tree.
This hollow vase is made even more interesting with the four natural perforations through the wood. It stands 5” tall, 4 ¼” diameter at the widest point and has beautiful color striations throughout. Created by master wood crafter Doug Dill of Lanexa, Virginia. Not suitable for use with water.
This unique collector’s piece is signed and numbered on the bottom and a small card with the tree source and date is included. The vase is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. Please note that this one-of-a-kind item is not eligible for a discount.
