This is a very pretty eggplant shaped box made out of Birdseye Maple (Acer saccharum) with Leadwood (Combretum imberbe) cap. Birdseye is a rare figured wood with interesting shimmering dots or eyes in hard maples. This type of figure does not happen very often, so Birdseye maple is considered a luxury timber. The Leadwood cap adds contrast and subtle figure to this piece. I really like the bird's eye effect on this one. It adds a whimsical touch to this eggplant.
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... This one is a unique gift.
