A fine antique early 19th century European snuff or tobacco box.
Black lacquered papier mache with a fine hand painted and heavily gilded scene of a mother and her infant sat by a crib with a spinning needle in the background.
It is further decorated with leaves and elaborate scrolling arches each containing a watching angel.
Unsigned, early 19th century, c1810's, European origins.
Fair used condition overall, crazing to the image and some light surface marks and scratches, chip to the lacquer in the top corner.
Lovely piece for the collector, a very fine example with a beautiful subject scene.
