Vintage Thai Silver Rabbit Chinese Zodiac Box

A wonderful little Thai Silver rabbit box, small enough to keep loose charms or a ring inside, and strong enough to protect these precious items. This little vintage silver box really stands out for its uniquely charming depiction of an animal. The box was hand hammered in a traditional technique known as repoussé. The hand-made work is really spectacular, as the silver gets hammered out to form the three dimensional body of the animal. Other details, such as fur, hair, teeth and animal textures have been meticulously rendered. The box is made of 90% silver, indicated by a stamp on the bottom, (T90) with the maker's mark in Khmer script (from Cambodia).
This figure is a rabbit from the Chinese Zodiac. In Chinese culture, the rabbit represents hope and stability. People that relate to the rabbit and stable, always earnest, friendly and loving. The Years of the Rabbit include 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, and 2011.

The box measures approximately 2 inches by 1 inch tall. This little silver bunny makes an excellent gift for animals lovers or anyone interested in the symbolic nature of the rabbit. The inside is unfinished, and the hand-work can be seen. This little animal charm can can be easily used for a presentation box, for a truly inspiring gift! There are more animals available, from the Vietnamese and Chinese Zodiac, as pictured above. Contact Kirsten's Corner if you need assistance finding your personal animal spirit.
