This solid oak business card holder is inlaid with a strip of woods in their natural color. The black is ebony, the white Holly, the darker tan is probably Pear and the lighter tan is probably Maple. It is finished with Watco(R) Danish Oil to bring out the natural beauty of the woods and a durable lacquer. It is signed and dated. It is perfect with the pen holders I have or looks nice by itself. A great gift for many occasions, or to treat yourself.
