Looking up your attributes object through objectValues will prevent
acquisition - rather than just asking the object to find an attributes
object for you, you're asking it for any attributes object amongst its
children only.

To search for your attributes object with acquisition, you could do:

getattr(context, 'Attributes object')

If the id of your attributes object did not contain a space (or anything
else illegal in a python identifier), for example AttributesObject, you
could just do:
