A special find is this gorgeous Victorian Oval Shaped Perfumer, Snuff Box, or Etui with a center shell opener and attached suspension loop for a neck chain. The piece of highly polished shell measures 3 3/4" long by 2" wide by 1 13/4" tall. The outstanding brass trim is scalloped with heart shaped cutouts. Very attractive! In the center is the opener to the inside area. It is made of green snail shell and encased completely in silver with a latched hinge. This hinge works well with a tight fit. The green in the center snail shell adds color and catches the eye for its beauty. The item is in excellent condition. Ready to be worn or displayed.
