A wonderful late Georgian lignum-vitae snuff box with exuberant engine-turned and hand-carved decoration.
This intricately decorated box measures 1 1/2" high by 2 1/4" in diameter and is in very, very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. The lid still fits snugly. The box has acquired a lovely, warm patina over the years and it is a very tactile piece.
