Antique 19thC Snuff Box Hinged Lid, Fine Cross Carving & Silver Shield Cartouche
This is an antique snuff box or vesta match holder with a hinged lid that has has a fine cross hatch pattern engraved onto the lid. It has white metal detailing which includes the hinge and an empty shield shaped cartouche on the lid, the shield is surrounded by fine carved dot decoration, and there is also an oval shape blank cartouche above the hinge.

No maker's marks or metal marks. A nice slightly curved shape to this snuff box, and carved fine line edging details. A well made snuff box. This could possibly be a Napoleonic prisoner of war item, it's about the right age and similar material it's made out of...

In good condition with normal signs of age and use wear. There is an impact mark on the left hand side of the lid which has caused a chip on the very edge and a couple of cracks radiating outwards from it, one crack goes up to the hinge. Otherwise, no damage from what I can see other than surface wear due to age and use where the decoration is not as sharp as it once was.

Please see photographs for more details. 57mm x 37mm x 15mm. Once an item is the in the postal system any delays are out of my cont rol. See the date it was sent.
