Antique 18th Century Hand Engraved Brass Tobacco Box
Height - 1 5/8".
Length - 4 3/4".
Width - 2 1/4".
Hand engraved 8 sided or octagon shaped, hinged tobacco box. Hand chased with floral decorations on top and all sides. C. 1800, hand crafted in the late 1700's to the early 1800's. There are no maker's marks.
I am unsure of the country of origin.
Condition: It has some light wear to the engraved decorations. There are some tiny dings and scratches. The interior has places where dividers were once soldered but are now missing. There is one small spot on the interior top rim that is thin and uneven possibly from wear or as manufactured. It is covered by the top when closed. The hinge is in working order and the box closes snugly and correctly. There are some green felt pads added on the bottom from a previous unknown collector.
It is carefully packed. Shipping within the USA includes insurance, tracking and delivery confirmation. Others please email as all of these service aren't available with all shipping options to other countries.
