LV-2084 Wooden Mushroom Threaded Box, Pill, Jewelry Box from Goldenrain Tree--SCREW CAP

$ 78.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of Goldenrain (Koelreuteria paniculata). This species is popular here as street trees for their panicles of yellow flowers and subsequence inreresting seed pods. These trees also provide nice fall color. The problem is their seedlings. I have two of these in front of my house and I have to pull seedlings by the bucket every spring. It is considered an invasive species. This mushroom came from a small branch from the trimming of these trees. The wood is surprisingly hard and heavy, considering the fast growth rate. The flaky bark stays tight and look very nice as accent for my brand new species of mushroom. I like this one!

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.
