LV-3617 Figured Olive & Black Walnut Acorn Box, Jewelry, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 125.00

This is an acorn shaped box made out of Figured Olive (Olea europaea) with Black Walnut Burl (Juglans negra) cap.  A decent sized box made out of local timbers, both walnut and olive are trees of many uses beside the beautiful woods they produce.  The timbers are often very nicely veined and fine enough to accept direct threading.  Olive is a tree of many religious, cultural and economic significants.  The leafy branches of olive are considered as a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. Olive oil also has been considered sacred and is till use in many religious ceremonies. The oil and fruit are important ingredients in many cuisines.  Olive is  the most mentioned tree in the Western sacred texts and literatures.  And the wood is one of my favorite with it's extra fine grain and beautiful figure.  Black walnut needs no introduction.  It is the most versatile dark wood from the temperate zone.  They do look great together here in this acorn.

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
