General Description

The bells at the bottom of the tower-shaped portion of this object appear to be fairly common among Polish spice boxes. The unadorned steeple and the flags at the top of the tower portion of this container are also common among Polish spice boxes. However, none of these motifs appear to be definitive of Polish spice boxes. As a result, there is some doubt as to the provenance of this object.
