Description


This exceptional antique German silver spice box has been modelled in the form of a tower.


The tiered cylindrical spice box is ornamented with exceptional silver filigree work within a plain geometric frame.


This impressive vessel is fitted with a hinged door accented with a plain loop fingerpiece.


The upper portion of this impressive silver spice tower* is embellished with a knopped tapering chute, encompassed with bands of tooled decoration and terminating with a large guidon flag design.


The spice compartment surmounts a plain tapering pedestal to a circular spreading weight base.


* A spice box is used to hold sweet-smelling herbs/spices and can be fashioned in many forms. As of the 16th century a very common form is that of a tower, influenced by developments in architecture. The spice tower is used to bring comfort to a Jew as they transition through Sabbath to their new week, receiving their extra soul known as a 'neshama yetera'
