A very early example of Old Sheffield Plate. A rare antique snuff box of circular shape with chased flowers and leaves and a pull off lid. The lid has an inlaid tortoiseshell top with silver pique decoration of the Fox and Crane fable. The base is made from pressed horn. Diameter 5.5 cms. Height 2.3 cms. Circa 1760. No makers mark.
This charming little box is in very good condition with no restoration. The tortoiseshell and silver pique decoration are in good order. There is a tiny chip to the edge of the horn base (see photo). There is wear to the Old Sheffield Plate with copper showing. The copper interior has some verdigree.

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.
