Item details

These dried seed pods from Physalis alkekengi plants are often referred to as Chinese Lanterns. They are real seed pods, but these are especially unusual because they have been partially "skeletized" by the work of nature. And because nature does things the way it chooses, there are some natural variations in some of the pods, some deformation and discoloration, small lacey holes from bugs, etc. Since these partially skeletized seed pods are fragile, they have been coated in semi-gloss polyurethane to improve durability of the seed pods.

Price is for five seed pods, varying in size from about 2" long (excluding the stem) and 1 1/4" diameter to 1 1/2" long and 1" diameter.

Items will ship USPS First Class Parcel with a shipping and handling cost of $3.60. Special precautions are taken to protect the product during shipping.

I have been contacted by customers regarding variations of what I offer in this listing. If, for example, you wish to purchase this item, but without the polyurethane coating, please contact me and I will do my best to provide you with what you are looking for.
