Description


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


The hexagonal prism shaped spice box is ornamented with exceptional pierced geometric style decoration.


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


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


One side of the flag bears the contemporary engraved inscription 'To Councillor Neville C. Goldrein, From the Liverpool Old Hebrew Congregation' and the other features 'Senior Warden 1968-71'.


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


* 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'
