    Efesgirl
    (1013 items)

    During the lull at yesterday's market, I wandered over to the table of someone across from me. I saw this snuffbox in the cabinet. Measures 2 1/4" by 1 1/2". It's quite light, weighing in at 15.22 grams. The lid closes with a resounding *CLICK*. The third photo is of the bottom, which looks identical to the top. :-))))

    I will post a similar one I found on Pinterest down in the comments.

    Thanks to kyra and kevin for putting my snuff box into the correct era.

    My first snuff box!

    Thanks for stopping by~!
    Bonnie

      Awesome find!!! I love these little snuff boxes, but have yet to own one. I'm afraid I'll become addicted to collecting these wonderful little gems!!

      scotty - I always look for snuff boxes, but only find the ridiculously high priced ones.
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Really nice. It might even be earlier, Georgian ..... hard to tell, I know.
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Kevin - that would be nice if it was Georgian!

      Great find at a great price! End of 18th, beginning of 19th, so to say georgian. :-))
    8. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      kyra - really? So Kevin is right.....
      How do you know - is it the design or the shape? I saw very few with that ribbed design pattern.
      Changing my heading...

      :-)))))
