The Snuff Box is modelled in the form of a large book, with ribbed spine. The cover and base are beautifully engraved with a formal arrangement of feathery scrolls enclosed by bead and rope work borders. The spine is engraved with sylised flower heads and the book title " Ovid De Arte Amandi." The sides are engraved to simulate the leaves of the book. The interior is gilded. These Snuff boxes are nearly always unmarked, however this example possesses the maker's mark of EH, for Edward Hall. A near identical example is shown on page 118 of "British Silver Boxes 1640-1840 - The Lion Collection." The box is in excellent condition.

Length: 2.75 inches, 6.88cm.
Width: 1.9 inches, 4.75cm.
Height: 0.45 inches, 1.13cm.
