LV-2765  Purpleheart & Verawood Eggplant Threaded Trinket Box, Needle Case, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2765 Purpleheart & Verawood Eggplant Threaded Trinket Box, Needle Case, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is very nice eggplant shape trinket box made out of Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap.  I have not made an eggplant for awhile because the recess, tapered, hand carved cap is an ado unto itself. But the deep purple Purpleheart and the deep green Verawood are begging to be transformed into an eggplant, so here it is: looks good enough to eat...Now, I am dreaming of Szechwan eggplant, eggplant parmesan, baigan ka bharta, moussaka, baba ghanoush... .and the simple oven roasted eggplants, mashed up with green onion and oil, a dish I used to avoid when I was little, and love when I know better. But I digress...again.  Anyway, this is a smaller version of the deep purple eggplants, which never fail to catch the eyes of my art show booth visitors.

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
