This elegant small brass snuff is an English antique, circa late 18th or very early 19th Century. It is nicely engraved with a scallop shell on the top half of the box and a large engraving of a whelk shell (or it could be a Triton?) which covers most of the bottom (and larger half) of the box. It has an unusual shape, rectangular with indented sides. The dimensions are: 2-3/4" long, 1-7/8" wide and 3/4" high. The latch is good, and the box itself is in very good condition, especially for its age!

This box would be a wonderful addition to a collection of shells, snuff boxes, or just small
boxes.
