LV-2652 American Chestnut & Black Walnut Burl Acorn Jewelry, Pill , Trinket Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of American Chestnut (Castanea dentata) with  Black Walnut Burl (Juglans negra) cap.  American chestnut was once a dominent species in North American forests, until a fungal desease wiped out the entire population and drove this species to near extinction.  Needless to say, this timber is rare.  It is a beautiful wood with blond color and prominent veins.  After much research and breeding effort, this species is slowly re-introduced to the natural habitats.  Hopefully, a life-time from now, American chestnut timbers will become abundant again like the black walnut I use for the cap.  But this cap is no ordinary walnut, but a highly figured burl for added visual complexity.

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.
