LV-3316  Holly & Golden Rain Wooden Mushroom Keepsake Box, Pill, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-3316 Holly & Golden Rain Wooden Mushroom Keepsake Box, Pill, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Illex opaca) with Golden Rain Tree (Koelreuteria paniculata) cap. This is a new species of mushroom with an interestingly named timbers.  Golden Rain got it's name from it's yellow panicles of flower and then seed pods. The cap is from salvaged timber of tree trimming around my place. I got two of these street trees in front of my house. This species is a resilient one. I have been battling unwanted seedlings from these trees every year. I was surprise to see that this species holds its bark well, so here it is another cute mushroom with the snow white Holly as the stalk.

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.
