hover over image to zoom

A rare and wonderful silver snuff box, the lid and base panels of tortoiseshell with gold piqué decoration of a charming, random nature; only the dark, naturally occurring 'clouds' of dark shell being decorated with the gold pins to a design of scattered flowers and leaves, a ribbon-tied bow and a solitary bird standing on a rock to the right hand side of the lid. The piqué panels Neapolitan, the silver frame of the box perhaps English if not Italian, circa 1750.
