A very collectible antique silver snuff mull with a silver hinged lid and chain. The horn body is in excellent condition. On the front is an inscription dated 1838.Length 17.5 cms. Diameter of top 3 cms at widest point. Marked inside lid with a continental silver stamp – CLNU SILBER. Probably Swedish and circa 1830.
Very good condition. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Grinding tobacco leaves in order to inhale the powder dates from the mid 17th century in Europe however the first snuff boxes don’t seem to have appeared until the reign of William III circa 1695.
