Gum Blosson Ornament by Outer Island
97mm x 49mm
Hand-painted Wooden Ornament with jute twine / painted one-side. Designed and made locally in Sydney. Bring the magic of Australian nature into your home this year. As iconic to Australia as a Kookaburra laughing, Gum Blossoms are truly remarkable plants. Brightly coloured in blossom, their nectar is intoxicating for the birds that flock to them. Unlike traditional flowers, though, their blossoms have brightly coloured stamens instead of petals. Since this item is handmade, each ornament is slightly varied in patterning, texture, wood grain or burn.
Price includes shipping within Australia direct from Outer Island
