Late 1800s Silver Plated Mussel Shell Snuff Box

A very pleasing, to the eye and to the touch, snuff box made from a European black, cream and purple mussel shell fitted with silver over brass mounts. The box has a tight fitting hinged lid which articulates against a floral chased bottom.

It measures 3" long by 1 1/2" wide. The shell is intact. The silver plate shows some wear on the underside and inside the lid.
