Description


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


The cuboid shaped spice box is ornamented with exceptional silver filigree work within a bordered, swept design.


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


The upper portion of this impressive sterling silver spice tower* is embellished with six cast hallmarked sterling silver gargoyle figurines encompassing a plain knopped tapering chute.


The tower's chute terminates with a large ball style knop to a hallmarked undulating guidon shaped flag.


The spice compartment supports six hallmarked sterling silver bells and surmounts a knopped pedestal foot.


This antique silver spice tower, crafted by the Judaic silversmith Jacob Rozenzweig of Rosenzweig, Taitelbaum & Co, is an exceptional example of its type.


* 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'
