I bought this to give as a gift and love it...
I wanted a special gift to take as a thank you to an overseas host. This looked like a beautiful representation of Wisconsin. I wish the maker had included a card with the names of all the woods to include.
Vase is beautiful! Never received shipment notification. Product did arrive in very timely manner - thanks!
The recipient of the vase was very pleased. She sent me a picture message with a red rose inserted in the vase.
Have received everything I order in excellent condition and quite rapidly. The inserts for the vases were missing and I called and they were sent out right away and I have received them--no problems at all.
The wooden bud vase is skillfully handmade with select Wisconsin hardwoods that are layered. DHH Designs' wood bud vases are individually handcrafted and highly polished with a natural finish.
Two options are available: with an accent (left) or without (right). The bud vase with an accent (left) features an African Padauk wood, also called Vermillion. First it is a bright orange/red when fresh cut aging to a deep burgundy within a few months. The bud vase without the accent feature different layers of hardwoods (black walnut, cherry, oak, and maple).
Each circular wood bud vase varies slightly in coloration, but all of them measure approximately 6 inches in diameter and 1 in. thick. A removable plastic tube, set off-center, is perfect for a fresh flower or two. A unique gift idea for her for an anniversary or birthday!
