These are fascinating and unusual items. They are made from old growth teak that has been salvaged from branches or roots of trees felled perhaps decades ago. Teak such is this is nearly indestructable. The grains are dense and the natural oil finish of the teak makes for a wonderful feel. It is illegal to farm these old growth trees in Thailand where these originate, so the craftsmen who make these search forests for old cuttings to find material to work with. In some cases they dig old roots. The supply of these is obviously limited, with the larger diameter boxes nearly gone in availability.
The top rotates on a hinge pin. When closed it gives a very
attractive appearance of a natural teak block. Every piece is different as you would expect coming from actual logs sections. The surface is lightly polished . Avail in 4 sizes. Each one is
different as they are from real logs. Ex-small is about 1.5-2.5 inches; Small is about 2.5 - 3.5 inches in dia; Medium
is about 3.5 - 4.75 inches in dia, large is about 5 - 6.5 inches in dia. Makes for
a great jewelry box, or desk or coffee table decorative piece.
