COMMENTS: Hand crafted snuff boy by Nathaniel Mills & Sons, a 19th century company of silversmiths in Birmingham, well known for producing high quality silver boxes and one of Britain’s most prestigious makers of ‘castle top’ boxes. This snuff box has a floral repousse border with engraved textured finish. Features a center cartouche that has been engraved "M: B.D. " which is very worn and difficult to discern. The interior of the box is gold gilded. Pictured as received from a local estate with undisturbed natural aged patina.
