A STUNNING RARE SCOTTISH HORN AND 22k GOLD INLAY RECTANGULAR TABLE SNUFF BOX.
Circa 1800. Scottish horn with Gold inlay Rectangular Table Snuff Box
This is a very fine quality Beautiful 19th century Scottish Horn Rectangular Table Snuff Box, this rare snuff box I would estimate dates to circa 1800 making it over 200 years old,
The quality is stunning and the decoration is very unusual, the top of the snuff box has been crafted beautifully with a Gold Inlay Decoration, this is not hallmarked but has been tested 22 ct Gold
This would have once belonged to a very wealthy 19th Century Gentleman and sat proudly on the table top ready to be used, this was many many years ago when times were so very different, if this snuff box could talk I can just imagine what fascinating stories it could tell, this snuff box is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel.
