Fine antique Victorian era hand carved solid horn snuff box, a wonderful little casket with ornate silver or white metal inlays and faux tortoise shell marquetry style top! One of a handful of snuff boxes that we have and are getting ready for listing, this a nice usable smaller sized one at 2.5” wide. Solid horn, hinged lid and base, and, as you can see, it’s in wonderfully preserved condition. Be sure to check back if you’re a snuff box and/or tobacciana collector. Thanks!
Very good condition, age & materials considered. There is a small chip to the left front edge of the lid and a tiny bit of the faux tortoise shell chipping to the front left edge of that inlay. Also visible is something that looks like marbling tiny cracking in the horn but that’s natural grain flaws in the horn and not damage. See pictures for all measurements.
