The graceful vase was handcrafted by Doug Dill in Lanexa, Virginia from historic Mount Vernon ash, dating to about 1820. The piece measures 6" at top, 2-3/4" at bottom and is 8" high. It is crowned by a perfect circle of exotic ebony which provides stark contrast to the durable blond ash. The Mount Vernon ash tree was leaning dangerously and was removed in 2016. This unique vase is signed, numbered and tree source indicated on the bottom. Your purchase is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies Association. Please note that no discounts are available for this item. Handmade in the USA.
