This is an interesting working man's snuff box. It is copper with a small brass insert in the middle of the lid. The box closes tightly. I bought it in England some years ago. In fact, I bought five or six boxes, all antique and used. I polished this box a little but not enough to ruin the old patina. It has dings and a little discoloration. To me, this adds to its appeal as an used piece of history. It is 3-1/4" long and 1-5/8" wide and 9/16" deep. The hinge is in great shape and it closes tightly.
