English Yew (Taxus Baccata) Wooden Wallet
Yew trees are a rich orange-brown colour and thousands of them were felled to make the famous English longbow in medieval warfare period. The trees that survived, including many churchyard specimens may live for a thousand years as yews are long lived. In England there are ten trees still alive that are believed to predate the 10th century. The oldest wooden artifact still surviving is a yew spear head, found in 1911 at Clacton-on-sea, Essex estimated to be 450,000 years old. This wallet is a limited edition, 1 of 200 wallets were made, this yew was felled in Dorking, Surrey in 2010. The shavings found in the box of the wallet come from yew.
