A camphor vase with a Brazilian cherry finial and cocobolo trim. The piece is 18” tall and 6” diameter with a threaded finial. The three holes filled with brass shavings and epoxy were the home of the three nails that did battle with my bowl gouge and won the battle but lost the war. Finish is lacquer.

Very finely made. I’m always amazed at hollow forms… I would probably have cracked that in two attempting it.
