As Found. An antique (probably nineteenth century) horn snuff box with tortoiseshell hinged lid.

The snuff box has been lightly cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, treatment. There is a chip to the tortoiseshell to the right hand side of the lid and some more minor nibbles here and there (see photographs). This is reflected in the price, but otherwise the box is structurally sound and closes crisply.

The box measures approximately 3.25in by about 1.25in at the base and stands about 1in high to the top of the lid. Weighs just under 40g.
