Description

This is a Rare Special Georgian Solid Silver Faux Tortoiseshell and Mother of Pearl Inlaid Lattice work Snuff Box, I believe this Snuff Box was crafted c1800 making it around 219 years old, this is the most Beautiful Georgian Solid Silver Snuff Box, it isnt Hallmarked but does test for Solid Silver, this is a round Snuff Box with a Pull off Lid and the Lid has the most Stunning Inlaid Lattice work of Solid Silver and Mother of Pearl on the Faux Tortoiseshell, the Patterns are the most Wonderful Scroll and Diamond Shapes giving it a Unique Detail and is truly Beautiful, the Base of the Snuff Box is also Faux Tortoiseshell with a Heart Shaped Mother of Pearl Finish. The Body of the Snuff Box is Sold Silver and when the lid is pulled of the inside Lid is Faux Tortoiseshell and also the Base with the lovely Heart Mother of Pearl, the Lid is a Tight Fit to the Body and this would have been owned by someone Wealthy in the Georgian Period. This really is a one of a Kind Georgian Solid Silver Faux Tortoiseshell and inlaid Lattice Silver and Mother of Pearl detail, condition is good for its age, there are light dings to the Silver and the Lid and rim of the Body are slightly mis shaped, but the Lid does fit on tightly and considering the age and use of this it is in good condition, and is only mentioned for accuracy and in no way detracts from the Beauty of this Rare and Unique Snuff Box, this would make a lovely Gift and this would add something special to any collection
