This item is a whimsical COQUILLA NUT MAN SNUFF. COQUILLA nut is the fruit of the Brazilian Palm. It has a very hard shell that can be polished and is routinely carved into various ornamental items. This one is a whimsical - just look at his eyes - snuff man. He is beautifully carved and sports a long great coat with a nicely decorated waistcoat (vest) beneath. He even sports a necktie. The back of the nut opens to reveal the snuff receptacle. The snuff measures just over 3 1/2" high. While he does have a pair of nicely detailed shoes, he does not stand up but rests on his back. This is by design it is not a fault. The nut is in excellent condition with great detail.
