This is a very pretty persimmon box made out of Bradford Pear (Pyrus calleryana) Lignum Vitae (Guiacum officinale) stem. Originated from China and Vietnam, Bradford pear is a popular ornamental trees around here. I really like this tree for the multi-color leaves in autumn and mass of white blooms in Springs that shed their petals like snowfall. This piece of pear wood is salvaged from my neigborhood's tree that was removed for re-landscaping.
A nice box for your valuables, about the size of a real persimmon. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Great as gift for the symbolic meaning of the fruit.
