This vintage silver plated spice-box has been made in the form of a fish, an ancient symbol of abundance. The fish has an articulated body and as seen in the photos, its head lifts up to reveal a cavity for storing spices.
The fish has been made with a lot of details including garnet encrusted eyes, scales, and fins along with a large tail. The placement of the tail and fins located on the lower part of the body enable the piece to balance on a table or other flat surface. The spice-box is in very good condition with no missing pieces or repairs. The lid opens easily and latches close securely, keeping the contents safely inside. As a vintage item, this spice-box shows some signs of wear consisting of minor scuffs/scratches and oxidation to the surface which provide the piece with a natural aged patina.This figural fish spice-box displays beautifully and would be a great addition to a collection of antique and/or vintage spice boxes. Perfect as a decorative ornament or used at the table on the celebration day. Pictures are Part of the Description. I make every effort to describe all my items fairly and accurately.
