LV-2836 Black Locust Burl & Bocote Acorn Jewelry Box, Pill Box, Trinket Box-SCREW CAP

$ 125.00

This is a larger acorn shaped box made out of Black Locust Burl (Robinia pseudoacacia) with Bocote (Cordia elaeagnoides) cap.  Black locust is a beautiful tree with Wisteria-like chains of dangling flowers. There is a street near my place lined with purple Locust trees on both sides.  Needless to say, that street turns magically beautiful in the blooming season.  The wood is hard, heavy and very durable. One very interesting thing about Locust wood is that it fluoresce under black light, producing a strong greenish yellow glow.  This particular acorn was made from a beautiful piece of burl.  This burl is incredible with choke full of eyes and swirling figure.  I like the wild but subtle beauty of this one.  The streaky Bocote cap provides another set of pattern for your visual exploration.

A nice sized 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.
