Description and Details
This Victorian solid silver snuff box was made by silversmith Taylor & Perry in Birmingham, 1841. Featuring a minimalistic and thin profile design, this box is an ideal addition to those who wish to use it on the go for pills/snuff/etc.
The exterior features a classic engine-turned motif on the lid and base which is complemented with reeded lines on the side of the box. Contrastingly, the interior is gilt with a glossy gold plate further adding to the vivid Victorian aesthetic design.
The hinge and closure of the box function perfectly with a smooth and tight closure upon shutting. The fine thumb-piece adjacent to the lid is also very practical with the thin design of the box, allowing the user to open the lid with ease.
The snuff box is fully hallmarked with a Victorian head, maker's mark, date mark "S" - 1841, silver lion and Birmingham anchor.
A highly practical snuff box for everyday use with a hint of classical accenting and style - indulge in a moment of history and luxury upon opening the box during your day.
