Silver Crab Box – Large
Exquisitely rendered in silver, this charming small crab box is a very fine example of Cambodian silver work. The legs and claws are articulated, as are the eyes. The plate on the abdomen opens up to reveal a small cavity for tiny treasures, and even has a latch. It is very realistic and would be a special addition to any collection of fine silver. We think this is 90% or higher silver; the weight is 44.5 grams. (Also see FCO136 for an even smaller one.)
Size: 5.0 in. x 2.0 in. x 0.63 in.
