LV-2982 Holly Burl & Black Palm Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2982 Holly Burl & Black Palm Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Holly Burl (Illex opaca) with Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) cap.  Holly trees are widely used as ornamental plants in gardens and parks.  The glossy leaves and bright red fruits are popular Holidays decoration. Holly symbolized truth, and is the official State Tree of Delaware.  The wood of Holly is one of the whitest, with very fine grain for a smooth finish.  Here, I have a rare burl form of this timber.  The wild grain and black line spalting adds visual interest to this nut.  Black Palm has intersting patterns that are well suited for an acorn cap.  This is a nice one!

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.
