Painted Besamim Box

Beautiful and rare wooden Besamim box...inside is divided by concentric circles and exterior is whimsically painted with a folk-art type design and carvings...6.5" x 3"...probably Eastern European...still retains it's fragrance from use...a real treasure!

Besamim holders come in an endless variety of styles and materials. They are filled with spices and passed around at the end of Shabbat and the Feast celebrations so their fragrance can awaken and comfort the soul.
