A beautifully good sized early solid sterling silver snuff box. It is unmarked but tests as high grade silver. I would date it to c1750-1800 possibly Dutch. It has been beautifully made having a domed lid and sprung fastening catch. The whole piece has been engraved with flowers, musical instruments, and wiggle work - this are faint traces of gilding to the base. It is in superb condition being free from dings splits and repairs, the catch works perfectly, it may have had a button to its front? It measures almost 4 inches (9.7cms) long by 1.25 inches (2.8cms) wide by 0.5 inches (1.4cms) tall and weighs 52 grams. A beautifully made high quality rare piece. Weights and measurements are approximate.
