About the object

A truly charming mid 18th century brass snuff box, engraved with tulips and the initials C & T, the hinge disguised with engraving; tinned within.

Made in a curious and exacting manner, the lid and base are soldered in the usual way but further secured by pins making for a strong and durable construction.
