BIG, wonderful, c.1780-1800 French shoe snuff is nearly 7" long, substantial and wonderful for your collection (or mine). Lid slides perfectly smoothly, just as it would have 240 or so years ago when it was made. There is a great little boutique in the Marais, near St. Paul's, where the gentleman deals in wonderful small antiques like these. Were you to find this or any of our others there, they'd be twice the price. I always pay him a visit, just to check on prices against our online shop, and a few times he's bought from us, also. Might as well buy yours from us and use that extra money to enjoy Paris for a few extra days, right? Measurements in full are on the photos.

Very good condition for age and type, a substantial size on this table snuff, and lovely old pique and patina, as well. The lid is a slider and not a hinged top. Slides perfectly well and no warping. Entirely hand made, each tiny brass pin set one at a time. I love these old snuffs!

Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
