Thanks for the feedback. The finish is layers of aniline dyes and wipe-on poly. You can view my how-to blog here: 2DYE4

What a fine and beautiful finish! It is stunning! Somehow it reminds me of the old Billiard (2 black and 2 white balls and no pockets) game. What a shame that it is not being played any more. It also resembles a Shang Dynasty vase I have.
