This is a large table snuff box, or for tobacco. It is 19th century, Victorian and made of black lacquered papier mache with a decorated top in the chinoiserie style (chinese type decoration but made in Europe for the home market).
It has a hinged lid that fits snuggly.
It is in very good condition and structurally sound. The decorated top has some wear to the gold leaf. Please examine the photographs to make your assessment of the box and please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information.
It measures 4.75 inches (12.5cm) x 3 inches (7.5cm) x 2 inches (5cm).
