The Zari Vases are made of natural salvaged Ankole cow horn, buffed to reveal a unique luster, with a 18 Karat Gold leaf finished base. Zari means "gold trim" in Swahili. Each vessel has a unique but similar shape and white/grey horn coloration. The perfect sizes for holding candles, kitchen utensils, displaying floral arrangements, and much more. Insert a plastic or glass container inside the vase to protect it from water damage, as it’s not made for long standing water.
