LV-2641 Holly & Wisteria Wooden Mushroom Threaded Box, Urn-SCREW CAP

LV-2641 Holly & Wisteria Wooden Mushroom Threaded Box, Urn-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Illex opaca)  with Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) cap.  What a sight to behold when the wisterias are in full bloom with their dangling chains of purple flowers!  The beautiful vine is fast growing, hardy and can grow very large.  The world's largest vine known resigns here in California, covering more than 1 acre! The wood is seldom seen utilized, so this is your chance to have your hand on a Wisteria artifact.  This branch came from a large vine on a front porch of my neighbor across the street.  It grew too large, so down it came, and up sprouted a few mushrooms from my lathe. Holly is the species with red berries for Holidays decoration. It has the whitest wood of all, perfect for mushroom stalks!

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
