Mahogany Fleur-de-lis

The 1998 design is a six-piece snowflake crafted of rare Cuban mahogany. Resembling a fleur-de-lis (Louisville's symbol), this design was created with a special router bit made by Vermont American Corp. of Louisville. The reddish brown mahogany wood was cut 50 to 75 years ago, when Cuban mahogany was common. It was purchased and stored by a furniture company but never used. It changes colors as it turns in the light. It is approximately 4" (100 mm) in diameter. The natural wood is finished with clear acrylic over shellac.
