LV-2381 Cocobolo Rosewood & Kou Acorn Jewelry Box, Pill Box, Trinket Box-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Cocobolo Rosewood (Dalbergia retusa) with Kou (Cordia subcordata) cap. Cocobolo is a true rosewood from Mexico with prominent darker streaking on the nice redddish wood. It is a very dense wood that polish up nicely. The figure can be extremely extravagant in Cocobolo. Ko'u was used by the Hawaiian Royalty for plates, bowls, spoons, and other utensils as it does not impart nor take on a flavor from food. (I licked it. It really doesn't taste like anything.) In the late 1800's the Ko'u tree was nearly wiped out but a moth infestation. It is now grown as an ornamental tree in landscaping and is not commercially harvested. It is a nice dark wood with very fine grain.
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.
