A vintage possibly hardstone small and slim lozenge shaped snuff bottle decorated with a pierced brass plaque to the front.
The stopper is a screw top (which does not screw all the way into the main body but nevertheless appears secure and stable), pierced at the top so that a loop and chain can be inserted. The stopper has an integral wand, which we believe is to help prevent the snuff from clumping.
The bottle has been lightly cleaned only in order to retain what patina there is to the brass.
The bottle measures just over 2.5in from the top of the stopper to the base and about 1.125in across at its widest. The main body of the bottle measures just under 0.25in deep. Exact age unknown but probably dates from first part of last century.
