A beautiful Victorian era snuff box.

I have a definite love for the snuff box and the thousands of beautiful variations they were created in, they featured heavily as a part of social etiquette in the 18th and 19th century.

Tobacco was seen as a luxury item but even the poorest of gentlemen would offer up his snuff to an acquaintance or friend as a greeting and gesture of goodwill.

This Snuff box is English made from papier mache lacquered black with a very fine silver overlay border or scrolls and stars.

In the centre there is a transfer printed scene of a young deer in the forest.

It is a rectangular shape.

Good used condition overall with age related wear, the transfer printed image has losses and rubbing, there is crazing in the lacquer and a few tiny chips.

Approx measurements:
3.5" width
2" length
1" height
