Charming early GEORGE III circular snuff box with pull off lid indented with Old Sheffield Plate images.
Unmarked. Probably made in Birmingham. Circa 1760's.

The lid is made of tortoiseshell inlaid with delightful Old Sheffield Plate images of Aesop's Fable of the Fox and the Crane. The sides of the lid are also covered in Old Sheffield Plate. The sides of the base are covered in die stamped Old Sheffield Plate with floral and leaf decoration, while the base is made of pressed horn.
For similar examples see Crosskey. G., Old Sheffield Plate, Treffry Publishing 2011, page 205.

Due to new regulations for tortoiseshell, should this box leave the European Union, it would require a CITES permit which can be readily obtained. Please contact us for details.

Diameter: 2 inches (5cm)
Condition: Excellent apart from a minute piece of OSP missing from the decorative crescent above the dragonfly.
