This is a beautiful box created by local artist, Maria Santos-Alcantara.
This box is handcrafted from the root of the Thuya tree before being expertly French polish finished to enhance the full character of this exquisite burr. It has a beautiful woody scent to it that fades with time. The top is made out of pewter, which has an enduring quality as it does not oxidise, meaning it requires no other care than an occasional dust.

Pewter has an enduring quality and since it does not oxidise, it requires no other care than an occasional dust. Simple dusting should be all that is necessary, but should you wish to clean the wood, use a wax based furniture polish. As with any wooden product, it is best kept away from conditions of extreme heat or damp.
