This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Pistachio (Pistachia vera) with Black Walnut Burl (Juglans negra) cap. Yes, it is the tree with the yummy greenish nuts. The wood itself also has a nice green tint with beautiful swirling grain. This particular acorn was made from an incredibly figured piece. The top was turned cross-grain to show off the multicolors and the beautiful pattern! Pistaschio is a very fine, heavy wood that polished up to a great shine. The cap is another set of wild patterns from Walnut burl. Both are salvaged timbers from old orchards here in California. This is a larger nut for your valuables. I really like this one!
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 a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
