This coin dish is made from Kingwood an exotic wood from South America. The name "Kingwood" derives from the fact that a couple of hundred years ago, this was the favored wood of French kings for their furniture. Kingwood is a rosewood with fantastic grain patterning and color. But it suffers from being only a relatively small tree. The trunk is rarely wider then 10 inches in diameter. Pictures are an example of the dish you will receive on purchase. Dish will be 3" - 4" in diameter. Larger sizes are available.
