    Item details

    A very nice George III silver mounted cowrie shell snuff box with flush hinged cover, decorated with bright cut engraving and engraved dedication "A present from J.M. to P.M." The silver is unmarked as is common with these boxes, but it dates to c.1800.

    It measures 8.5cm (3 3/8") long, 6cm (2 3/8") wide and 4.2cm (1 5/8") high. 

    Condition is very good; a tiny loss to the edge of one of the sections of the hinge. No other damage or repair and light surface wear to the silver.
