This is a lovely early wooden turned, I believe Walnut, snuff box or I suppose it could be a trinket box. It has a beautiful patina and is detailed with scribing all around the edge of the lid, which is just above the center. There is also scribing around the bottom of the pedestal base. The little handle on the top is made of finely grained carved bone, of which is there is a little piece out of the bottom of it. There are a couple tiny little cracks in the wood on the bottom of the pedestal from natural aging I believe. The little box measures about 2 3/4" tall including the handle and it is about 2" in diameter.
