Mexican Silver Christmas Ornament in the shape of a Pomander
This hinged globe-shaped silver box, in a design of repoussé silver contrived to look like the leaves and stems of the painted metal and pearl flowerets that stud its surface, resembles nothing so much as a pomander. In its fitted red velvet box it summons up also the memories of the old traditional paper ribbon balls that used to be unwound until they disclosed their hidden treasures. Christmas is a time of exciting mysteries and this delightful object from the 1930s fashioned in coin sliver evokes that very quality the season never seems to lose. Ornament measures 3.25 Diameter.
