A unique silver salt dish formed as a Maiko’s okobo (geisha-in-training sandal). The whimsical design features two sculpted straps and etched soles. This salt dish is the perfect accent on any stylish table setting. It nether side inscribed “Arthur & Bond, Yokohama, Sterling”. (Arthur & Bond was a prolific and honored British silver company with a studio in Yokohama, Japan. Its Japanese silversmiths worked on commissioned silverware for export to the west. The silverware evoked Japanese motives, but with the grandness favored in the west.) This silver salt dish is in excellent condition and includes a glass insert.
