Here is a RED Toleware decorated snuff box in outstanding, if not spectacular, condition, c. 1840. The lid of the box shows a farmer carrying a basket of wheat. The entire box is painted red and there are yellow (gold) margin lines. The box has cut-corners and opens to a clean interior. It measures 3 ½” x 1 7/8” x ¾”. Except for some very minor edge bumping of the paint, and some very minor and scattered losses in the red background, it is in excellent condition. Red tole is rare, and finding it in this pristine condition even rarer.
