A lovely Georgian snuff box it is very rustic in design but still has plenty of charm, late 1700's.
Kidney shaped box with a hinged lid it is made from papier mache which has been left unfinished with gadrooned lacquer details and underneath has a starburst type design, the inner is fully lacquered but has some chips and nibbles.
Any early and primitive type of snuff that would have been accessible to most men not just the noble or rich.
Overall the snuff box is in good antique condition particularly for the age, there are a couple of tiny chips in the laquer (see photos).
Approx 2.2" width and 1" height.
