Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The surface of this antique gold box is plain and the underside is embellished with contemporary engraved scrolling interlacing initials.
This impressive snuff box is fitted with a hinged cover encircled with a subtly incurved band to allow for ease of access.
The cover is ornamented with further contemporary bright cut engraved initials, reflecting the same style but different formation to that of the underside of the box.
The interior of each compartment is plain and unembellished.
This impressive antique piece has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 20ct gold; often such 18th century boxes are a higher purity of gold than modern examples and bear no hallmarks, which is not uncommon.
