This vase is made for a piece of apple wood that had many cracks and other defects. The cracks and the void in the lip of the vase give it a very rustic and unique appearance. The vase is 4 1/4" in diameter and 12 1/4" high. It is finished with 5 coats of semigloss wipe-on polyurethane. This would make an excellent piece for a cabin or natural decorated room.
