A nickel alloy or Paktong trick-opening Snuffbox, circa 1840, copying a late 17th century form, the interior stuck with a maker's mark 'WH' and the name 'W. Howe' together with two crude pseudo lion passant marks. The box is probably English but possibly Colonial. The outside of the box is engraved with script initials and, on the base, with a view of two donkeys in adjacent fields and the motto 'When Shall We Three Meet Again?'. The box has a false button catch at the front and opens with a concealed catch attached to an interior spring.
Denting to lid. Some wear to detail.
