When my neighbor died, her family came and cleaned out her house and put the boxes of trash on the ground beside the dumpster as it was full. When I took out my trash I saw the boxes but this little green thing was plain to see and I couldn't believe that anyone would throw it away, so I rescued it! I have taken it to two antique dealers and one of them said it might be a snuff box and the other one didn't have any idea. It's made of metal, maybe brass, it looks like green paint on it, It is 4 " long, and 1" & 3/4 tall. The only marks are stamped on the bottom say (JB 1627) I was hoping that I would find out what it is before I die and someone throws it away again.
