Ankole Horn Vase
The Ankole horn vases are made of natural salvaged horns as a food by-product and buffed to reveal a unique luster. This piece is as much art as it is functional, perfect for your favorite flowers, kitchen utensils or simply to stand alone.
Ankole horn comes from a stunning African native breed of cattle native known for their distinctive horns. The horns are some of the largest in the world and can reach up to 8 feet. Every horn is unique in their beautiful color variations from light to dark with stripes of ivory, black and brown. There are no two horns that are identical which makes every single one of these rare in its own way. The Ankole horn used are ethically sourced.

Insert a plastic or glass container inside the vase to protect it from water damage, as it’s not made for long standing water.
Because this product is made of pure natural horn, special care is required. This product also should not be left soaking in water. Vases are heat sensitive and should avoid direct sunlight as high temperature can cause the horn to crack or change in shape.
