About the object

A Victorian Antique English Silver Snuff Box

1882 London

Of shaped rectangular form with embossed “Happy and Sad” Asian theme masks on front and back.

An angry face on one side, and a happy face on the other--illustrative, perhaps, of the mood-lightening benefits of taking snuff.
