This adorable little box is European in origin and dates from the late 19th Century. It was used to hold snuff, with it being small enough in size to be placed in your pocket.
The piece measures 2 1/2" by 1 1/2". It is made of horn that has been hand carved. It has a hinged lid that closes securely so its contents are safe from spillage. It has a cream background color, with the natural shades of brown and black showing through.
The snuff box is in fine antique condition, and could be used today to hold your pills or anything else you desire.
