LV-4638 Raffia Palm Nut & Brown Ebony Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

LV-4638 Raffia Palm Nut & Brown Ebony Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 85.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Raffia Palm Nut (Raphia hookeri) with Brown Ebony (Caesalpina paraguariensis) cap.   The Raphia nut, with its random spots, makes a great acorn cap. Raphias are monster palms, with leaves up to 82 feet long! The longest leaves in the plant kingdom. This nut came from a tree that was already dead, since Raphia species only bloom once then the whole tree, or the flowering trunk, would die from the effort. One would expect such giants to be more virile. Weird thing. This is one acorn with a bright, stylish look. The brown ebony cap echoes the brown stripes of the nut, capping it off perfectly.

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for  small jewelry, keepsake... Thought the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
