This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Port Orford Cedar (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) with Kou (Cordia subcordata) cap. This cedar bears the name of a beautiful Oregon's coastal town. We had fun there one summer watching boats being hauled off the water into the only drydock port on the West Coast. It is not a true cedar, so it is more accurate to call it by it's other name: Lawson cypress. But, I don't known Mr. Lawson. I know Port Orford, so I rather call it by the long, tougue twisting name for the memmory it evokes. The timber is rather plain, but emits a strong, distinctive, spicey scent for an interesting olfactory experience. I did not seal the inside of this acorn so every time you open it, you cam inhale the aroma. Cap with dark brown Kou for contrast.
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.
