This is a very cute mushroom threaded box made out of American Holly (Ilex opaca) with White Elephant Palm Nut (Kerriodoxa elegans) cap. Another mushroom with an exotic looking cap from an equally exotic palm species. I am not sure what white elephant has to do with this palm, but the nut does have a wrinkled pattern like that of the elephant's pachyderms. Holly, of course is great as mushroom stalk, being the whitest wood there is. Delicious!
This threaded box can be used to hold tiny valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers.
