S/4537 Antique Treen Boxwood Spice Flask
A lovely boxwood spice flask in three screw sections, having a top with a pointed ball finial, that unscrews to reveal a single small hole leading to the interior. The body, of globular form, unscrews from the base, which allows access to the interior. It is raised on a concave stem, which in turn is seated on a turned stepped foot. The whole has a most wonderful pale honey colour and has a good patination.
