LV-2991 Flamed Box Elder & Walnut Burl Acorn Trinket Box, Jewelry Box, Keepsake-SCREW CAP

$ 215.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Red Flamed Box Elder (Acer negudo) with Black Walnut Burl (Juglans negra) cap.  Box Elder is a species of maple native to North America.  The wood is fine grain, but relatively plain.  An interesting fact about this wood is when injured, the wood reacts by developing a brillian red stain, as seen in this large acorn. Such a beautiful natural red flames in this piece of Box Elder!  The best example I have ever came across.  Black Walnut is also a domestic species with dark wood, well utilized and well known.  This eye-catching, exotic looking, decent sized (>3" diameter) acorn is truly made in America!

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.
