Silver Olive Tree with Ambergris ~ Wire Tree Sculpture T5
In Tunisia, the olive tree is a symbol of prosperity and longevity. This solid-silver olive tree was the result of the expert collaboration and hours of work of two designers.
Our aster silversmith handcrafted the tree’s trunk, branches, stems, and leaves; then, perfumed ambergris olives, fashioned by Saida, our partner of twenty years, were fixed to the tree’s silver stems, and the tree was planted on a sturdy marble base before being sealed in a small decorative case.
The box serves to contain the lovely aroma of the olives until such time as it is opened, releasing the characteristic scent of ambergris into the air. The Solid-Silver Olive tree comes in 5 sizes.
