This lovely snuff box is an Art Deco piece from the 30's in a high polished silver colour alloy, with hinged lid adorned with the beautiful rising sun pattern which can be associated with the flag of Japan. The snuff box still has snuff inside and it was purchased as such, however of course is unlikely this can still be used. The box is used and in a very good condition, although it does have oxidation in places.
