This beautiful casket is a very unusual piece made from a coconut shell. It is beautifully smooth on the outside, the inside being padded and lined with a deep red silky material finished off with little glass beads giving an elegant and classic design.
This beautiful box is in excellent condition. The marks which appear to be scratches are actually the natural patterns of the coconut. It measures approx. 12 x 1 1x 10cm and I believe it dates from the late 20th century. It would make an excellent case for an exceptional piece of jewellery or a special watch on a dressing table or a bedside cabinet.
The gorgeous classic and elegant design would make this a wonderful gift for either a male or a female.
