Dryburgh is a ruined abbey beside the river Tweed between Melrose and Kelso. It is smaller than the nearby abbeys at Jedburgh, Kelso and Melrose. The abbey was established by the Premonstratensian Order in 1150. Sir Walter Scott, the novelist,was buried here on 26th September, 1832, beside some of his ancestors and his wife, who had pre-deceased him in 1826. The quality of this box is outstanding and it is most unusual and very rare to see this view on a Snuff Box.
