This elegant trinket box is turned from Black Cherry (Prunus serotina). The form itself if pleasantly simple, with straight sides that flare out at the lid. A pair of delicate beads decorate the seam between the lid and the base, and a small raised medallion adorns the top of the lid. Texturing on the bottom of the base provides a little added surprise when the box is handled. Finished with danish oil and buffed to a semi-gloss sheen, this box feels as good as it looks. It has already started to develop the deep rich patina that cherry is so prized for, which will only get better with time. The perfect place to keep your most precious earrings, cuff links or other keepsakes.
