Antique c1850 Faux Tortoiseshell Silver Inlay Lacquer Snuff Box

Super c1850 lacquer snuff box with faux tortoiseshell design that I believe is a papier mache. Measures about 3 5/8" x 2 1/4" and is about 1" thick. Hinge looks to be brass and works very well....nice tight close. Early to mid Victorian and nice sterling silver inlay and foliate corner decorations. Very good to fine condition....some minor visible wear upon ultra close inspection as it is just missing one tiny piece of the center medallion's silver inlay as shown.
