Handmade Historic White Oak Vase No. 41

Sold out
SKU 31089

The majestic white oak stood at George Washington’s Mount Vernon for about 240 years until it fell on a windless night in November 2019. It had witnessed the passing of history as Civil War soldiers carved a cross and star in its bark. The tree was 115 feet tall and 12 feet around.

Each handmade piece crafted in Lanexa, Virginia, is numbered and signed by the artist Doug Dill. Your bowl is accompanied by a numbered certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. To honor the history of the tree, the wood turner has etched a star and cross into the bottom of each piece. 

This stunning small vase displays a smooth edge, prominent striations, graining of various wood tones and several gorgeous knots. Also note the woodborer holes which add to the vase one-of-a-kind character.
