    Set of Eight Italian Silver Crab-form Boxes, by Buccellati
    Italian, 20th Century

    These charming silver boxes, which could have been made as salt and pepper or pill pots, are each crafted to resemble a small crab. Crafted with great precision and superbly realistic, they make for a highly desirable set of collectibles. They all are complete with shells, four legs on either side, and a pair of pincers, and they open up with a hinge towards the rear. These quirky and delightful objects are also completed with eyes made of red coral, adding a welcome spark of colour to these sterling silver pieces. They are stamped for Gianmaria Buccellati, and embossed 925.
