Astral Vessel 0178

Astral Vessel 0178

The body of this beautiful vessel was cut with 24 classical flutes by our 1875 Ornamental Lathe while the cap was ornamented with relief-carved and line-engraved patterns using our 1915 Rose Engine.

The inset applique, a solid Sterling Silver fluted dome, extends the theme upward to the crowning gemstone, a 6mm natural Red Garnet cabochon from Brazil, expertly set in one of our signature Sterling Silver bezels.

The original model for the silver medallion was also made with an ornamental lathe, using a rare, early 19th century Spherical Sliderest.

Architectural harmony, from top to bottom ...for your most precious cargo.


Gunmetal Gray


Diameter 1-3/8" X 2-1/4" Tall

Care Information

Our Astral Vessels are made from modern aircraft-grade aluminum that we carve, engrave and ornament using a variety of metalworking techniques, from ancient to modern. Our designs will sparkle like new for years thanks to the anodizing that illuminates, colors and hardens the surfaces, shielding the vessel from corrosion, abrasion and light impact.

Treating your vessels with care and taking simple precautions can go a long way toward preserving their beauty and function. The pouch and packaging included with your vessel offer significant protection during transportation or storage.

To prevent damage to non-metal components from thermal expansion and contraction, ALWAYS STORE YOUR ASTRAL VESSEL AT ROOM TEMPERATURE.
