Swedish Sterling Silver Etrog Box With Coral Mermaid

A meticulously handcrafted sterling silver bonbonniere/box, likely conceived and designed as an “Etrog” box by WA Bolin Sweden. This substantial gilded box boasts a rectangular shape with gracefully rounded edges, showcasing the unmistakable touch of handmade craftsmanship that sets it apart from machine-made counterparts. The box exhibits a subtle hammered texture and features a prominent coral Mermaid figural ornament crowning its lid.

Comprising two distinct pieces, the base accounts for approximately 66% of the box’s height, while the remaining portion is dedicated to the artfully adorned top. The top is embellished with silver waves that cradle the sizable coral figure, which, despite a slightly discolored base—typical for such large coral pieces—is in overall good condition. The meticulous construction is evident in the discreet seam around the mermaid figure, a testament to its crafted intricacy. The box is thoughtfully gilded, serving as a protective barrier against the acidity of the etrog lemon.

  • Overall measurements: 7″ (19cm), including the mermaid figure.
