Thunderbird Silver Box
This rustic hinged lid box was designed in the U.S. with raised, stylized depictions of seven Thunderbirds from Native American legend. Recognized by tribes throughout the U.S., the Thunderbird is often seen atop traditional totem poles in the Pacific Northwest, and in the images and legends of the American Southwest, Great Plains and Great Lakes regions. It is is considered a supernatural bird of power and strength.
The nickel silver box is handmade by a single family in the Central Highlands region of Mexico. Nickel silver does not tarnish like sterling or silver plate, but rather develops a nice luster giving it the look and feel of a vintage piece of silver. Use a cloth to remove dust and polish away fingerprints. Velour lined. Measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 2" tall. Weighs 1 lb. 5.6 oz.
