LV-2978  Redheart & Tamboti Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2978 Redheart & Tamboti Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Redheart (Erythroxylon mexicanum) with Tamboti (Spirostachys africanus) cap.  February is the month of the heart, so I pulled out all my "Heart" woods and make a few acorns for your enjoyment.  Redheart is one fun timber.  I have never seen any other wood with such bright, saturate red color.  The red, however, tend to fade with direct exposure to sunlight.  I have a UV block coating on my Redheart items to retain their color.  Avoid bright light will also help.  The Tamboti cap will stay brown no mater what.  

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for  small jewelry, keepsake... Thought the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
