This classic shaped box is turned from a beautiful piece of olive wood (Olea spp.) and features a delicate bead where the lid meets the base and a subtle ogee curve in the lid. The distinctive grain lines in the olive wood flow continuously from the lid into the base. This particular piece of olive has just a hint of chatoyance that makes it shimmer subtly when viewed from different angles. Texturing has been applied to both the bottom of the box and in the inside of the lid to provide a little surprise when the box is handled or opened. A Tung oil finish enhances the natural depth and shimmer of the wood, and has been buffed to a pleasant sheen, but still gives it a natural wood feeling. This box is the perfect place to keep your most precious earrings, cuff links or other keepsakes.
