We are pleased to be able to offer this Delightful Georgian black papier mache snuffbox inlaid with mother of pearl floral design.
An adorable small example of a Georgian English snuff box c 1810 made from papier mache and adorned with a mother of pearl floral dragoon style embellishment to the lid.
The condition is very good for its nearly 210 years of age just age related wear but do not detract from its elegance mentioned for accuracy, hinge works fine giving a good seal essential for keeping the snuff of the day dry and fresh.
