Description


This exceptional antique German 800 standard silver spice box has been realistically modelled in the form of a fish.


This impressive fish shaped box has an articulated body, allowing the fish's position to be customised.


The body of this antique silver spice box is embellished with separate dorsal and pectoral fins, in addition to rows of engraved scales.


The forked caudal/tail fin is further ornamented with engraved textures replicating the fish's natural features.


This antique German piece retains the original hallmarked push fit hinged cover/head.


The impressive head of the fish is embellished with engraved decoration accented with two gem set eyes and incorporating a secondary push fit hinged cover modelled in the form of the mouth.


The Hanau pseudo-marks to the interior of the cover are unidentified; pseudo-marks were not registered with an administrative office and no records exist to check them against determining an attributed identification to be a comparison or probability.
