Pair Regency Lignum Vitae Spill Vases

Classical grace is reflected in this pair of urns, turned to hold spills -- twisted paper "matches" for carrying fire from the hearth, etc., to light candles or a pipe. They are in lustrous lignum vitae, a very hard tropical wood, valued for its beauty and durability. British, approximately seven inches tall and four inches in diameter, they are hand-turned. (Note the variation in the lower details.)
