LV-3403  Pink Ivory & Verawood Persimmon Pill Box, Jewelry Box-THREADED

LV-3403 Pink Ivory & Verawood Persimmon Pill Box, Jewelry Box-THREADED

$ 145.00

This is a very special persimmon shaped box made out of Pink Ivory (Berchemia zeyheri) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap.  Pink Ivory is an exotic wood native to Southern Africa, and is one of the most rare and beautiful woods in the world. The color ranges from salmon to pink to dark red.  This persimmon was made from a wood blank with nice orange tone. The wood is fine grain, lustrous, with a shimmer when turned cross-grain like this one.  Since I am experimenting with making persimmon box, this orange color will be perfect in combination with the greenish Verawood for the calyx.  Also known as Fruit of the Gods, persimmon is the symbol of joy in China, and triumph in Japan.  Another colorful, unique box for your collection.

This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers
