Regal Triumph is a wood turned hollow vessel made from walnut. It is topped off with an ebonized walnut finial. The ebonizing process is done with a solution of vinegar and rust applied to the walnut. There is a chemical reaction which turns the walnut dark. This is an ornamental piece not intended for food or liquid. It is finished in an old Louise XIV process called French Polish (shellac) where the finish is applied while still on the lathe. This allows the finished to be burnished into the wood while turning. Then end result is a natural sheen that highlights the wood without making it look and feel like plastic.
