This snuff box is a bit unusual. I have not seen one before. It is shaped like a horseshoe. The mother-of-pearl insets are the nails for the shoe. Victorians really used the horseshoe image on many decorations signifying good luck. The lid lifts. The bottom is smooth. The primary image looks to have a scuff on the top. This is a result of light reflection. This box does have some minor scuffing on the edges. Otherwise in great condition. It measures 2 1/4" x 1 1/8" x 1".
