This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of American Holly (Ilex opaca) with Betelnut (areca catechu) cap. Holly trees are widely used as ornamental plants in gardens and parks. The glossy leaves and bright red fruits are popular Christmas and holiday season decoration. Holly symbolized truth, and is the official State Tree of Delaware. The wood of Holly is one of the whitest, with very fine grain for a smooth finish. Palm nuts are also called vegetable ivory. They are hard, stable, usually sport intersting patterns. Here, the Betelnut cap adds visual complexity to this bright holder.
The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. The slim profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for the people on the go. This holder can be used to hold toothpicks, pill, snuff, sewing needles, cash stash and small valuables...Also serves as a nice gift for someone who seems to have everything.
