Burr or Burl Wood 19th Century European Garniture Set of Three Turned Jars

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.
