This is a pretty mini acorn shaped box made out of Snakewood (Piratinera guianensis) with Red Palm (Cocus nucifera) cap. This acorn is about pattern, pattern, pattern. I am always on the look out for natural patterns. Snakewood plus Palm wood is the most pattern-rich combination of just the woods themselves, without burl or spalted effect. It is also an unlikely combination of the hardest wood in the world with one from the grass family. Well, they look pretty good together, I would say.
The screw-on cap makes this acorn box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. Great for daily pills, small jewelries, memorial keepsake....Acorn is also a symbol of good luck and prosperity. It is therefore a unique and meaningful gift for the "hard-to-shop-for" folks.
