Offering for sale a lovely 19th century, circa 1890, papier mache snuff box from England. It features a black background, with lovely tiny flecks of mother of pearl and or abalone inlaid in a wide border with hand painted gold trim on each side; and a lovely larger inlay in the center. It has a hinged lid in good working order, and no cracks or repairs. There is minor surface wear from age here and there, but in truly lovely condition . It measures 2 & 1/2" by 1 & 1/4". There is no signature that we can find. We acquired this in a group of antique papier mache from England via fellow antique dealers.
