LV-3459  American Holly & Yollilo Palm Nut Wooden Mushroom Box-THREADED

LV-3459 American Holly & Yollilo Palm Nut Wooden Mushroom Box-THREADED

$ 75.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Illex opaca)  with Yollilo Palm Nut (Raphia taedigera) cap.  Holly is the whitest commercial wood.  It is the tree with red berries for holiday decoration.  It is the State Tree of Delaware.  To ontain the whitest timber, the tree need to be cut at night during a certain phase of the moon to minimize the amount of sap content within the wood and then dried carefully, so they said.  The Raphia nut, with it's random pattern, makes a great mushroom cap.  This is another interesting nut from the raffia palm family.  The nut is often use as natural beads and that's where I obtained my stash.  The bead hole blends in with the dark pattern of the cap when filled with brown resin.

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
