This is a Sapele wood vase or weed pot with a red agate stone enbedded in he front and a blue stone in the rear. The vase comes with a 3/4 X 4 3/4 inch glass vial. Sapele is also known as scented mahogany, aboudirko, penkwa, muyovu, libuyu, and sapele mahogany. It grows in west, central, and east Africa. Interlocked, sometimes wavy grain producing a distinctive roe figure on quartered surfaces. Medium texture, high luster, pale yellow sapwood and light red to dark reddish brown heartwood. Works easily enough although surface may tear when planing due to interlocked grain. Glues, screws, and nails satisfactorily. Responds well to stains and finishes, particularly if grain is filled. Used for many of the same applications as true mahogany: furniture, cabinetry, decorative veneers, paneling, flooring, interior and exterior joinery, window and door frames, doors, staircases, boat and vehicle construction, and piano cases. This vase measures 7 3/4 inches tall by 8 1/2 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches deep. This would make an intriguing conversation piece in any room.
