The side of this beautiful Spring Green vessel was cut with an array of 72 contoured squares using our 1875 Ornamental Lathe. The bold pattern provides a modern design sensibility --and a firm grip.
The cap of the vessel was also carved in relief, but we used our 1915 Rose Engine for the work. The sidewall was rose-carved with a fine harlequin pattern while the top edge was beveled with a sunray pattern that changes constantly with the light.
The centerpiece is a mesmerizing, polished buff top of Stainless Damascus Steel, inlaid in the cap and crowned with a 6mm luminous Blue Sapphire cabochon, expertly set in one of our signature 18K gold bezels.
A truly unique design, finely crafted...for your most precious cargo!
Diameter 1-3/8" X 2-1/4" 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.
