|Title:||TOGGLE BOXWOOD PRUNUS|
|Size:||3.00" x 0.75"|
A fine boxwood carving of a blossoming prunus well worn and with good patina. The plum is the first to blossom when winter has subsided and is therefore emblematic of youth, beauty and resilience. The tree loses it’s greenery in the face of a bitter winter only to blossom forth beautifully again in early spring. It is admired for its resilience and everlasting beauty. The five petals of the blossom represent the five natural blessings, a long life, health, wealth, many progeny and most importantly, a natural death. 19th c.
