Handmade Historic Pecan Tall Vase No. 239
This finely turned pecan vase was created by Doug Dill, master woodcrafter in Lanexa, Virginia. Wood for this vase was sourced from the Mount Vernon Pecan Tree circa 1850. The pecan appears prominently in virtually all exterior graphic and photographic images of Mount Vernon. The tree stood next to the Mansion with branches soaring to 145 feet and posed a direct threat to the Mansion and the priceless objects contained therein. The approximately 50-ton tree was removed in January 2014 and the wood held in safekeeping on the Mount Vernon estate.
The unique vase features prominent striations, graining of various wood tones, several prominent knots, and woodborer holes to add to its one-of-a-kind character. It is approximately 9” tall, 4 ½” in diameter, with a 3” base, and a 4" opening.
Signed and numbered by the artist and accompanied by a certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
