This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of English Brown Oak Burl (Quercus robur) with English Walnut (Juglans regia) cap. A symbol of strength and endurance, oak is the national tree of many Western countries, including the US, and of course England. English Brown oak is not often available at this side of the pond, let alone a gorgeous piece of it's burl. Here it is: full of confused grain, swirly pattern,eyes, and voids. The voids were filled with clear resin, as if the resin wasn't there. The result is a disconcerting acorn that looks so rough to the eyes,yet silky smooth to the touch. The cap was also made from a top grade English Walnut, with beautiful, dense figure. I really like this one of a kind acorn!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
