Set of Five Whimsical Cedar CarvingsHere is a set of five whimsical cedar carvings. These include two candlestick holders, one an elegant turned piece in the shape of a hurricane lamp, the other shaped like a tall vase with two handles.

All have beautiful color and grain patterns. They are finished in varnish - ranging from a glossy surface on the ball to matte on the egg. The egg and the vase both had some splits (and branch holes in the egg) that were filled with wood filler before being varnished.
