About the object

A good quality boxwood urn shaped lemon squeezer, having a top that unscrews, revealing a long wood screw with a flat and rounded knob on the end to crush the lemon, which allows the juice to come from the spout at the bottom. They are extremely tactile and this one is made of boxwood, which has a lovely rich honey colour, finish and patination.
