each hand carved mango wood vase is carefully hand painted with oil and water. Charred wood aroma evident because these have been dried in wood burning kilns. The scent will dissipate over time. White paint spots will be evident as this is caused from natural air bubbles not allowing the paint to adhere to the white painted wood. We will not accept claims for this. Expect differences in colors, markings, etc. Color matching is not possible between each. Dry botanicals only. Sustainable. Weight: 4 lbs.
