A really super little SNUFF BOX hand made …. we think the wood is Burr Walnut. This lovely piece measures 2 3/4" ion length and 1 3/4" in width....and is just 1/2" thick. The box has that beautiful smooth rich mottled walnut patina and is very smooth to the touch. The opening latch is different.... you just push it upwards to raise the box lid. The lid has the almost typical Georgian inlaid cartouche on the lid.... actually it is a bit different in that it resembles 'an eye'.. A stunning little piece of treen beautifully crafted.....even the hinges are in wood on a metal pin.
Snuff is a smokeless tobacco made from ground or pulverised tobacco leaves. It is inhaled or "snuffed" into the nasal cavity, delivering a swift hit of nicotine and a lasting flavoured scent (especially if flavouring has been blended with the tobacco).
