Hollowed vase, 10 inch diameter. I used to live in the wonderful town of Gmunden Austria. The city gardner gave me about 20 chestnut burls a few years back when they trimmed the trees on the promenade by the lake. I have been working my way through the pile. Hollowed out to about 3/8” Danish oil and clear shellac finish. Thanks for looking!

That city gardner was a very good friend to have. Very well done with shape and form.
