Articulated Silver Crab At the end of the feudal period (1853) when the US Navy arrived & demanded Japan to reopen their ports & tradings with Westerners the Samurai class was abolished. Almost all machi-koba (factory) – where armors and armaments had been produced for centuries were closed, and the unemployed blacksmiths, craftsmen started using their skills to make household & ornamental objects in bronze and other metals: koro, vases, okimono.. Articulated animals are a deviated application of their armor-making skill, where thin pieces of metals are overlaid, interconnected to create specific forms with natural flexibility. Here presented is a very rare & highly unusual Japanese silver (probably plated copper/bronze) crab pill / snuff box. The crustacean is quite flexible, even with its eyes. Its apron – shown that of a young female – opens to reveal a hidden compartment for pill or spices, snuff? Covered by the apron. At the end of the feudal period (1853) when the US Navy arrived & demanded. Japan to reopen their ports & tradings with Westerners the Samurai class was abolished. This is not sterling silver.

Chinese Antique Silver Snuff Bottle with Long Heavy Antique Chain
Chinese Antique Silver Snuff Bottle with Long Heavy Antique Chain. This fine, important and heavy gauge antique Chinese silver box is suspended on an equally heavy and impressive original antique solid silver chain and is a fine piece of oriental craftsmanship from the late 19th or very early 20th Century. Richly embossed with numerous birds and sea creatures including crabs and stylised fish in the Mongolian taste as well as various Chinese characters, it is in fantastic antique condition with no damage and retains a fresh sheen as well as the superb antique patina in between the design. Chinese silver marks can be seen clearly on both ends of the piece. While given its size, weight and quality it is fairly obvious that this would have graced the neck of some important official or individual, we are not entirely sure what its purpose might have been. It could be a snuff box (which might have been used with some sort of snuff spoon) or else possibly an amulet holder which could have been worn to ward off evil spirits. Whichever way, it will make a highly prized addition to the most demanding collection, and is offered at a very reasonable price.

Origins of the Name. The surname Elphinstone is derived from the territory of Elphinstone in the parish of Tranent, meaning of Elphinstone. The original people of this name are believed to have been known as de Erth. Later still they were known as Elfinstun. The people of the Clan Elphinstone are believed to have originated from the lands of Airth in Stirlingshire. They were called de Erths and erected a castle nearby and through marriage inherited lands near Tranent in East Lothian. These lands came to be known as Elphinstone. Deeds dating from 1235 from this area bear the name de Elfinstun and grants dating from 1250 record the name John de Elphinstone as a witness. Sir John Elfinstun married Margarot Seton of Clan Seton she was also the niece of King Robert I of Scotland also well known as Sir Robert the Bruce. A descendant, William Elfinstun, became rector of Kirkmichael at the age of twenty-five. He studied Civil and Canon Law in Paris, eventually becoming Professor of Law in that university. In 1484 he was appointed Bishop of Aberdeen and later Lord High Chancellor of Scotland, a post he held until the death of King James III of Scotland in June of 1489. In 1494 he was given a bull from Pope Alexander VI for founding the University of Aberdeen. He died in 1514. 16th Century & Anglo Scottish Wars. In the 16th Century during the Anglo-Scottish Wars a cousin of William Elfinstun called Sir Alexander Elphinstone led the Clan Elphinstone at the Battle of Flodden Field in 1513 where he was slain, fighting in support of King James IV of Scotland. Alexanders son also called Alexander too over as chief and led the Clan Elphinstone at the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh in 1547 where he was killed. The fourth Lord Elphinstone was appointed in 1599 as a judge of the Supreme Court of Scotland in 1599 and later Lord high Treasurer. 18th to 19th Centuries Jacobite risings & the Napoleonic Wars. A cadet branch of the Clan Elphinstone were the Lords Balmerino. They were staunch Jacobites and the sixth Lord Balmerino was captured after the Battle of Culloden and beheaded in August 1746. The eleventh Lord Eliphinstone was lieutenant governor of Edinburgh Castle. One of his younger brothers called George Keith Elphinstone was a successful and distinguished naval commander. In 1795 he was made vice admiral and commanded the fleet which captured the Cape of Good Hope and compelled the Dutch fleet to surrender without firing a gun. His reward was an Irish barony. He was later promoted to the rank of admiral, and created Baron Keith of Banheath, only to be advanced once more, to the rank of Viscount in 1814. William George Elphinstone, the Viscounts nephew was a Colonel and fought against the French at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 during the Napoleonic Wars. Track Page Views With.
