Highly Unusual Scottish Hoof Snuff Mull Figural Bird Silver & Brass

Here is a very unique and beautiful Scottish animal hoof snuff mull in the form of a figural bird. The silver lid has a pineapple finial, and the light and dark color tones on the finish are just amazing. I believe the brass bird shaped "beak" opens and closes to allow the snuff to pour out (see pix", and the two brass eyelets further resemble a bird. The mull measures approx. 5" long, and 2" wide at the base, narrowing to 1" across at the head, and weighs 4 ounces. The mull appears to be in excellent condition with the with the exception of light wear commensurate with its age which I believe may date back to the 1800s. There is also tarnish to the brass beak cover.
