Poor photo, but a beautiful sterling silver container by Virginia Gordon a San Diego artisan being sold at Persimmon a great shop off Beverly Blvd at Flores St in Los Angeles. I have my own little obsession with silver boxes. This week I found, the book, “Silver Boxes“, by Eric Delieb, 1968 where he explains:
“This book is based, in the main, upon a thesis of my own
development, namely, that any receptacle which has a lid, attached or not, and
which was intended to accommodate articles other than victuals (which would make
it a ‘vessel’) may be grouped under the general heading of ‘box’.
