We are pleased to be able to offer this exemplary Beautiful Rare fine quality Victorian Ornate Solid Silver Table Snuff Box , this stunning snuff box was crafted by the Hanau Silversmith Simon Rosenau. Bad Kissingen and imported by the the world renowned Silversmith Samuel Boyce Landeck , it was Assayed in Sheffield in 1896 making it 123 years old, though it may be a little older, this beautiful Table Snuff Box has the most ornate and breath taking embossed decoration i have seen in many years, with repousse decoration around the sides of scrolls and foliage and a stunningly beautiful repousse scene on the top depicting 3 young putti children playing, each doing different things, 2 putti's are sat on a log holding a dove whilst the 3rd is feeding grapes to a ram with doves flying around, there are also mythical creatures to the shoulder on each leg finishing with a hoof shape foot, on opening the hinged top of the box not only are the hinges in lovely condition but it still retains its original gold gilded interior. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a wealthy Victorian lady and been used daily when snuff taking was very popular, this was in a time when things were so very different, many years ago, this is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel. This will add something very special to any collection, my photos don't do it justice, it is in lovely condition. So beautiful, fully hallmarked, beautiful condition
