LV-2831 Dogwood & Kou Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) with Kou (Cordia subcordata) cap.  Native to North Eastern US,  Flowering Dogwood is the state tree of Missouri and Virginia.  The mass blooming of Dogwood in Spring is a sight to remember.  The wood has a nice pink tint with subtle coloration and is very hard and dense.  Hard enough that it was used to make golf club, mallet and butcher block, among other things.   Dogwoods, with its showy flower bracts and profused blooming are popular ornamental trees.  The wood, however, is not a commercial timber and only available occationally. Kou is also a rare wood from Hawaii with nice brown tone and fine grain.  The showy orange flowers of kou  are used as a lei flower.

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.
