French boxwood takes a wonderful patina like practically no other wood. Not to be compared with South American or Laotian, French boxwood is a very slow growing species with a heavy dense structure perfect for polishing. It is a wood highly cherished by turners. Frankly, we don't understand how the French can make these charming little boxes at such a low cost - they truly are masters of ornamental turning - but you can be the lucky beneficiary of their skill.
This set of two small round boxes with threaded Boxwood lids are sized (interior) 1-1/4 x 5/8" deep and 1-5/8" x 5/8" deep. They are great for storing jewelry or other small valuables - or even make terrific pill boxes. Combine with the Boxwood Sewing Kit for holding buttons, pins and notions. We like these a lot - a wonderful choice for stocking stuffers at a surprising low price.You May Also Like
