LV-5270 California Buckeye & Betelnut Acorn Pill Box, Pendant Box-SCREW CAP

$ 62.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Buckeye (Aesculus californica) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap.  From my home state of California, Buckeye is a timber that carries the State's name in it Latin epithet.  The bluish stain Buckeye burl is something very special.  It is one of the few wood that exhibit this kind of color, add the wild pattern and it is truly unique. This item is fashioned out of a top grade piece of burl with lots of eyes and nice color mix.  The patterned Betelnut add more visual complexity to this acorn.

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for  small jewelry, keepsake... Thought the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
