A wonderful early pewter snuff box with well formed integral hinges and nicely rounded corners. The box measures 3 1/4" in length, 1 3/4" in width and 1" in height. Inside the lid it is marked in raised lettering "Manufactured By J. M. Carlstedt, Rockford, Ills. Have seen the same shaped box marked with the name E. R. Walerg, Rockford, Ills. Perhaps one individual purchased the company from the other at some time. Could be as early as the Civil War era; nice wear pattern on the underside of the box, otherwise in wonderful untouched condition.
