This beautiful vessel features a classical acanthus leaf quatrefoil medallion, cast in Sterling Silver and inset into its cap. Designed and carved in relief by master engraver Amayak Stepanyan, its low dome is crowned with a 6mm diameter natural Iolite gemstone set in one of our signature Sterling Silver bezels.
We used our 1915 Rose Engine to carve the ornamental grip on the sidewalls of the cap as well as the elegantly curved top corner that frames the medallion. The lines perfectly compliment the quatrefoil as well as the traditional fluting pattern carved into the body of the vessel below.
Diameter 1-3/8" X 2-1/8" Tall
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.
