Regular price £199.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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.

Good used condition overall, crazing to the image and some light surface marks and a few scratches, commensurate with age.

Lovely piece for the collector, a very fine example with a beautiful subject scene.
