Crisp cast borders and engine turned decoration to the sides and base. The top bears a regimental inscription. Weight 542 grams, 17.4 troy ounces. Height 4cm. Top 12 x 8.5cm. London 1822. Maker John Reily.
This impressive antique silver box is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The cast border and engraved decoration is crisp. The hinge is good and the box closes tightly. The interior retains the original gilding. Stamped on both pieces with a full set of clear and matching English silver hallmarks.

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.
