About

Burr or burl wood 19th century European garniture set of three turned jars. The larger of the three has a turned burl wood finial lid and the other two have turned wooden bases and a hole at the top indicating a possible use as a condiment set. Similar vessels have been used as tobacco jars. Burl wood comes from trees that have undergone stress where shoots have tried to sprout in a restricted area, either below or above ground, creating a very decorative rough texture that is very much sought after by sculptors. The two smaller pieces are 6 1/2" tall and 3" in diameter.
