A/1840’, the maker’s mark ‘AN’, the silver standard mark ‘87’ and Moscow's town mark, depicting St George slaying the dragon.
Called a Besamim box, this item is designed to hold the aromatic spices used in the Jewish Havdalah ceremony. This ceremony marks the end of the Shabbat (the seventh day of the week, reserved for rest and prayer). In this ceremony, the spices are passed around during the service to comfort and soothe the congregation, readying them for the next working week.
