The Snuff Box is of broad rectangular form with a slightly curved base and cover. Both the cover, base and sides are decorated with crisp engine turned designs.
The interior displays exceptional gilding and is very well marked. The quality of design and production is exceptional and this box is in excellent condition.
Alexander James Strachan supplied the Royal retailers, Rundell, Bridge & Rundell with the majority of their boxes and has consequently been described as the "Paul Storr" of box makers.
