This extremely unusual vase with lid was handcrafted by Doug Dill in Lanexa, Virginia from historic Mount Vernon ash, dating to about 1820. The ash vase which is approximately 8" tall is topped by an ash and ebony lid embellished with an ebony spiral providing a 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.
