Description

A fine and rare pair of early Georgian period straw work snuff boxes dating to c.1725 - 1735.
Each highly decorative and jewel-like box features minutely detailed mythological scenes to the front and arabesques to the reverse. Both are created with consulate skill by a supremely talented hand using the tiniest slivers of marquetry and pen work.
These boxes retain a good portion of their original colouring and are in very good to fine condition with minor losses.
These museum quality items really do provide a unique opportunity for a collector of taste.
High resolution Images upon request.
Worldwide shipping available.
