This is an interesting wooden snuff box from Germany. It is made of wood and is decorated with an interesting image of a monk encountering a gentleman in a grave yard. It is painted with an ink wash and has delicate line work. It appears to be lathe turned and has very nice lines and levels. The lid is very tight fitting and is stained inside a deep maroon. The back of the box has a stain maybe from the interior stain. This was made circa 1750. I measures 2 3/4" in diameter and is 1/2" thick.
