LV-2984  Purpleheart & Verawood Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2984 Purpleheart & Verawood Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 78.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap.  True ot it's name, Purpleheart is a special wood that quickly turns purple after exposure.  The purple color will deepen with time.  Another interesting wood that turns green is Verawood.  This cap was forgotten in my shop where the sun was shining on it for awhile, turning the outer surface a deep hunter green, while the inside still has it's fresh-cut hue.  It's hard to believe these are natural colors of the timbers in this striking acorn!

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.
