S/3898 Antique Treen 19th Century Jarrah Wood Bottle
A bottle, reputably carved from an old Australian fencing post, made of Jarrah Wood. It is an interesting part of Australian history. Of the many exotic woods available to woodworkers, Jarrah Wood, Eucalyptus Marginata, exhibits one of the most distinctive colours and grain patterns. The wood can darken over time with exposure to air, so that it resembles mahogany. The sapwood is paler, usually pinkish-red. Jarrah grows only in south western Australia, and is used for various outside uses, as well as furniture.
