This fabulous Spring Green vessel features a classically fluted body made with our 1875 Ornamental lathe as well as a sparkling, relief-carved cap created using our 1915 Rose Engine. The fine harlequin pattern on the edge of the cap ensures a positive grip while the floral sunray pattern cut into the top shimmers with the changing light.
The centerpiece is an icon of Art Nouveau design in the 20th Century, a 100 Franc coin (KM #919) featuring Marianne, the Goddess of Liberty and a national symbol of the French Republic, depicted wearing a Phrygian cap and holding a flaming torch. She is an allegory of reason, opposed to monarchy, and the champion of freedom and democracy against all forms of dictatorship.
Diameter 1-3/8" X 2" 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.
