LV-2681  Redbud  &  Mun Ebony Slim Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

LV-2681 Redbud & Mun Ebony Slim Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

$ 70.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of Redbud (Cercis canadensis) with Mun Ebony (Diopsyros mun) cap.  Redbud is state tree of Oklahoma.  Also known as Judas Tree,  it is belived that Judas Iscariot hanged himself on the European version of the Redbud.  Morbid information aside, this is a very showy ornamental with deep magenta pink flowers in profusion every spring.  If you enter Yosemite through route 140 at the right time of the year, the Redbuds in full bloom along the Merced River is a sight to remember.  The wood is pretty, too:  olive green, shimmering grain.  Is is not a commercial timber since the tree does not grow very big, hence items made out of this wood is hard to come by.  Capped with dark Ebony for contrast.  

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.
