Notes: Nadezhda features something of everything: segments, staves, and Ferry's Zigzag Joint in the crown, the beautiful Brazilian kingwood in a strange corkscrew twist, and a base with purpleheart darts and pernambuco wedges. See the "Making of Nadezhda" to get an idea of the complexity of this project.
Important to know:
Because pernambuco is listed in CITES Appendix II, this candlestick cannot be shipped outside the United States.
