This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Illex opaca) with Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) cap. This is another species of mushroom, grown from trunks of the wisterias that shadowed my neighbor's house. I guess the magnificent blooms were not enough to compensate for the undisciplined proliferation of this vine, so one fine day, the whole thing was cut down to allow sunlight to enter the once gloomy home. I salvaged a few pieces for my collection and realized it can become awesome mushroom caps. So, here it is...
This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers.
