SUPERB ANTIQUE 19thC GEORGIAN KIDNEY SHAPED BRASS SNUFF BOX, c1810, HINGED LID
This is an early 19th Century brass snuff box, with a plain domed shape and a hinged lid. This type of box has become commonly known as Welsh miners snuff boxes and are often engraved with the owners name, but this one is unmarked. The box is solid brass with a brushed metal plating to the inside which looks to be lead. The brass is in original unpolished condition with the kind of patina that comes from decades of being handled.
width - 5 cm, 1 1/2" x length - 8.5 cm, 7/16"Condition:
A wonderful snuff box in excellent antique condition. The hinge is still nice and tight and the lid snaps tightly closed and opens easily. The outer surface show expected signs of usage wear as expected, the interior is clean, a superb little piece.
