The box has an unusual slender rectangular form and the sides and base are decorated with engine turning. The cover displays a raised cast panel, in relief, of a game hunting scene, with game birds and a gun dog in a detailed rural landscape. The scene is very detailed and crisp and is contained within an unusual reed and tie frame, with Rococo shells in each corner. The box, also, has a detailed cast thumb piece depicting floral and foliate sprays. The interior is very well marked and displays deep, original, gilding. It is our opinion that John Jones III made some of the finest hunting snuff boxes at this date and an example, from his workshops, is shown in "Silver Boxes", by Eric Delieb, page 48. A very rare and desirable box.
