Condition


This antique gold snuff box is an exceptional gauge of gold, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The engine turned decoration is all very crisp; it can be determined this piece has seen little to no use.

The British hallmarks to the interior of the body and cover are very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this antique 19th Century piece.
