LV-4640 Partridgewood with Raffia Palm Nut Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob-SCREW CAP

LV-4640 Partridgewood with Raffia Palm Nut Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob-SCREW CAP

$ 72.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Partridgewood (Andira inermis) with Raffia Palm Nut (Raphia hookeri) cap.   Partridgewood got its name from the grain pattern that resembles partridge feather. It is a pretty dark brown timber with very tight grain.  The Raphia nut, with it's 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 death, 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 bold, stylish look.

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. It is ready to dangle off your keychain, bag zipper, belt with the removable lobster claw. The nut is small enough to be worn as a pendant (without the claw). Good for small daily pills, keepsake...Not recommended for long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
