Our hippopotamus bonbonniere is a wonderful piece of silverware, made to the highest quality. The back of this beautiful hippo opens up via a hinged lid, to create a small box which can be used as a dressing table or desk accessory. This is a small but incredibly complex item to make, and is hand made from start to finish. The bonbonniere is presented in a luxury gift box. To prevent the silver from tarnishing, we recommend a regular clean with an impregnated silver cloth.
