*New piece – Spalted beech box SORRY SOLD

£160

Out of stock

SPALTED BEECH. Turned from spalted beach this lidded box is a beautiful little box that will be a great keepsake for many years. It has a drop lid with turned finial. The whole piece is turned from one piece of timber so the markings follow on from the lid into the body of the box. We always put a Groatie Buckie in our little boxes for luck.

Groatie Buckie

Folklore says they bring good luck.

The ebbing tide leaves beautiful treasures behind, one of which is a cowrie shell known locally as the Groatie Buckie. Small molluscs (or sea snail creatures) create these porcelain-like shells with a narrow opening along one side and delicate ridges along the back.

Finished with several coats of oil and buffed. approx size 115mm x 85mm∅
