Super c1840 lacquer snuff box with faux tortoiseshell design that I believe is a papier mache. Measures about 3 5/8" x 2 1/4" and is about 1" thick. Hinge looks to be brass and works very well....nice tight close. Early to mid Victorian and nice sterling silver inlay and foliate corner decorations. Very good to fine condition....some minor visible wear upon ultra close inspection as it is just missing one tiny piece of the center medallion's silver inlay as shown. I have reduced this as far as I can.....and cant believe I have gotten to 100 bucks! Shipping and insurance is only 8 bucks! Hello.....anyone looking??? Paying attention? This is worth more than this.....I saw an almost identical piece over 400 dollars not last year, I think 450!!!!! I have reduced as far as I can go, and I paid more than what I am selling for here......you wouldnt believe me if I told you! Now also includes free shipping/insurance within the USA! Fantastic deal!
