Two Lidded Persimmon Pots

I am most pleased with these two little pots. They are made of very dense Persimmon, a relative of the Ebony family, and burnished up off the tool, then polished like glass. They are 3” high x 3-1/2” d. and 2-3/4” high x 3” d.
I added a chatter-work medallion made out of walnut-stained maple on the top of each lid for interest. All comments most welcome.

Beautiful Barbs. I’ve picked up a piece of Persimmon and yes it’s hard but I’ve not done anything with mine yet.

Yep I can understand yopur delight with these couple of little beauties, never turned persimmon Barb but it sure looks pretty hard stuff hence the great “burnish” finish. Just love the center console work it gives a slightly Aged look to my eye.
Top job Mam, ...... Puttin them up for sale on your site?? :: ))
