Regular price £349.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
A handsome antique early 19th century brass tobacco box.

It is designed in the Dutch manner with a naively bright cut engraved heraldic emblem to the top of the lid, there is a lion and a castle enclosed within a shield, the shield surrounded by scrolling foliate and a decorative border.

It is a large table top box with a lightly domed lid on a brass hinged lid, standing on magnificent lion paw feet.

A very grand piece of Antique tobacciana, no liner to the box as is common with a box of this age.

Very good used condition overall, some light surface wear and signs of use commensurate with age, some tarnish within and to the underside.

Approx measurements:
7.5" width
3" height
4.75" length
