A small vintage or antique white metal mounted shell snuff mull or pill box. Although a little difficult to show in the photographs, the mull has a mottled green band towards the top. There is a small bit of mother of pearl missing towards the top of the mull, just below the green band, but this is surface only and probably reflects wear and tear commensurate with age and use.

The mounts includes a terminal with loop attached towards the bottom and a sliding piece of metal which covers the cavity in the shell. We are not certain what type of shell this is.

The mull measures approximately 2.25in from the top on the loop on the terminal to the bottom of the loop at the end of the shell (but excluding the small drops). It measures about 1.25in at its widest. The mull weighs just over 12g.
