For the collector--and storer--in your life, consider this antique silver German spice box in the form of our furry parkland friend. Perfect for squirreling away your favorite treasures!
This unique and unusual 800 silver spice box is imaginatively and expertly crafted in the form of a squirrel on a log. The squirrel is perched daintily atop a beautifully detailed log which has been encircled all around the base by intricately made leaves, ferns and foliage. His facial features are extremely well defined and his nicely detailed ears are alertly pricked up, as is his splendidly plumed bushy tail which rises majestically behind him in an elegantly curving shape. The fur on his body has been meticulously rendered and his paws have been beautifully finished with exquisite precision. His head lifts off revealing a hollow body into which spices or condiments can be placed. The entire piece is in excellent condition throughout with a soft and pleasing patina which nicely accentuates the crispness and clarity of all the decorative elements. The base of the log has been stamped in two places with German hallmarks. For more information, click here.
