Offered for your consideration is this very lovely Vintage Solid Silver Articulated Fish Spice Box, or Havdala Besamim Spice Snuff Box. The Fish has gemstone set cobalt blue eyes. Hinged mouth opens and closes to hold scented spices. It stands on fin shaped feet and hallmarked "800" to indicate .800 purity solid silver. Perhaps Spanish hallmark, but many countries use this type of 800 hallmarks so we can not tell for sure.
