LV-3543 Eggplant Threaded Box, Needle Case, from Camatillo & Verawood-SCREW CAP

LV-3543 Eggplant Threaded Box, Needle Case, from Camatillo & Verawood-SCREW CAP

$ 125.00

This is very nice eggplant shape trinket box made out of Camatillo (Dalbergia congestiflora) & Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap. Camatillo is a true rosewood species with a beautiful deep purple color and darker streaks.  It is one of the rarer timber since the tree never grow very big. The figure on this particular piece is truly beautiful! The wood is extremely fine, polishes up to a hard shine.  Verawood is a fine, hard and heavy wood (also known as Argentine Lignum Vitae) with a nice green patina after exposure. The cap of this box was turned and let to "aged" in my workshop for awhile to achieve the green tone. This wood combination is just perfect for an eggplant.  This small eggplant is long enough for toothpicks, sewing or darning needles up to 3-1/4" long.

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
