The upper portion of this impressive silver spice tower* is embellished with four articulated hallmarked flags encompassing a knopped tapering chute and terminating with a large guidon flag design.

* 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'
