English Paper Mache Snuff Box
A early English Paper Mache snuff box. This Snuff box 3 1/8 inches in diameter and sits 1 3/8 inches high. The outside of the box has a rubbed painted scene of two people on the side of the bank, fishing. The scene has been handled many times over the year and does show Wear. With the lid off there is a chip to one inside raised area. This does not show when the lid is on the box. Snuff was a very favorite item in the 1700-1800’s by both the men and women. This sweet box could be use today as a keeping box and added to a collection.
