English, late 19th Century
Height 16cm, width 43cm, depth 35cm

This unusual and charming box, crafted from fine brass, is a wonderful piece of Victorian miscellanea. This box is formed as a naturalistically rendered crab, replete with eye stalks—which function as handles to open the box—legs, and claws. Not only a functional box, this piece is also a wonderful work of finely crafted art.
