This is a beautiful and rare Irish silver snuff box, made in Dublin circa 1795 by A. Tuppy. Made in the form of a book, the lid is the front cover, and is flat hinged to the body. Silver gilt on the inside, the edges of the box are engraved tomimic the pages of the book. The "spine" of the book is engraved "Foots Works", presumably for Lundy Foot of Dublin, a snuff maker.
