Getting Closer to Discovering

I have been researching the item pictured in the last post. While I was looking for something else I found some similiar decorative items that were spice boxes.  Some of these were used in Jewish Havdalah ceremonies.  The role of the spice box is to contain the pleasant fragrant spices that are sniffed to console and invigorate our souls, used in weekly rituals.  They are also called etrog or esrog boxes.  Some families have traditional mixes they have handed down over time.  So, I now think I know what it is but I still haven't found others made by the same company. So the search continues........
