Historic Red Oak Vase #219
This hollow-form vase features a lovely natural edge, interesting color shading, and four dramatic stitches added by the artist to stabilize the piece. The wood was sourced from a Red Oak tree, circa 1798. This fallen tree stood over the present-day Slave Memorial at George Washington's Mount Vernon until 2016 when for safety reasons it had to be removed. This hollow-form piece is approximately 7 ½” tall, 6” in diameter and 5 ½” diameter at the top and is not suitable to hold water.
The finely turned vase was created by master wood crafter Doug Dill. This unique item is signed and numbered on the bottom; a small card with the number and tree source and date is included. The piece is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. Please note that there are no discounts available for this item.
Handmade in the USA.
