This is a Pecan wood vase. Pecan comes from the Hickory family. It is very hard and durable just like hickory. Actually it is slightly harder. It was finished with walnut oil and wax. It is hollowed on the inside to follow the contour of the outside. This vase is decorative only and should never have water in it. The vase has my signature branded in the bottom. Size: 10 3/4 inches X 5 1/2 inches Finish: Walnut oil and wax.
