If you were looking for a unique piece to put into your home and the two pieces above were all that you could choose from, which one of these would you choose and why?
Incidentally both pieces are ones that were donated to MPBN in years past for their fundraising auction. Sorry but I don’t remember exact dimensions for either of these anymore.
I can tell you that the one on the left is Maple Burl for the body and African Blackwood for the finial.
The one on the right is Maple Burl for the body and lid. Both were dyed green on the outside and left natural on the inside. The top and bottom finial were turned from African Blackwood.
So which would be your choice? And why.
