Very rare, silver baroque box - Leipzig 1689-1691




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


Silver, cast, driven and chased with Leipzig inspection and other marks. Above the base, which is engraved with leaf ornaments, the body is decorated on all sides with splendid, detailed tulip and daffodil blossoms. The domed lid is framed by a corrugated band and crowned by a three-dimensional petal as a knob. Since the tulipomania had already reached its peak in the first half of the 17th century, this box was not used to store the valuable, sought-after flower bulbs. It was probably used as a sugar bowl or a confectionery bowl.

Height 13 cm, width 16 cm, depth 12 cm
