CROWN JEWEL - OLIVER WOOD | Steinway Gallery Singapore

OLIVER WOOD O-180 with SPIRIO 

Country of Origin

Olive is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the Old World. Since the cultivation already began in prehistoric times, it is no longer possible to reconstruct the boundaries of the natural range. In principle, however, the Mediterranean region can be considered as the natural range.

 

Extent of Occurence

Throughout the Mediterranean region. Olive trees are usually crooked and gnarled. In the south they can be up to 20 m high, while in the north they are smaller. Since the main usage of olive is oil production, the value of timber production is subordinate and completely insignificant, thus there are rarely olive trees with effective length greater than 1m.

Characteristics

The fundamentally yellowish wood is highly decorative and creates beautiful effects in great expanse as the surface is irregularly striped with fine dark veins. However, frequent cracking makes the processing enormously more difficult.
