This is an original chestnut wood vase carved and designed by West Virginia wood craftsman artist Allen Ritzman. Unlike other works by this artist, this is a very rustic vase. There is writing in ink on the bottom that reads "West,VA 1996, Allen Ritzman 50 year old chestnut from split rail fence." It measures 15 1/2" tall and each of the four sides measure anywhere from 4 1/2" wide - 6" wide. Part of this amazing vase is turned and other parts rough and coarse giving it the rustic appeal the artist was going after. Part of the wood on one side has a really unique split wood appeal where part of the wood isn't as flush against the body giving it an even more unfinished rustic look.
