This pretty little box is both very attractive and useful. The body and lid are spalted cherry and the finial is made frlom purple heart. Ideal for those little bits and pieces, odds and ends whether it is ear rings or cuff links. Its delicacy is reminiscengt of oriental styled boxes and cups and with the copper band and inclusions it follows the wabi sabi philosphy of revering wear and tear, the cycle of life. It is a total of 6 1/2" tall overall with the box being just 2 1/2"
