She may love to have this filled with those french chocolates.
Beautifully figured bowl and base turned from Cherry and sitting on a candy twist stem which is turned from White Beam and has been finished with ebonising lacquer. The diameter of the bowl of is 127mm and it is 36mm deep, while the whole stands 120mm tall. As this piece is made from three separate turnings it did take some time to complete as the stem had to dry before the piece could be finished but the ebonising does complement the cherry really well. After sanding the bowl and base have been finished with beeswax and buffed to a soft shine.
