Rare tortoiseshell oval snuff box with inlaid scene in silver of fisherman with rod on the river Stour in front of Melford Hall Suffolk. The turrets of Melford Hall are clearly visible in the background as is the windmill to the left. The silver hinge to this piece works perfectly and the rim and sides around box are also silver. Melford Hall Suffolk still stands today.
Cracks to top are visible from the underside they do not effect the overall appearance of the inlaid scene. The tortoiseshell oval base is perfect. The silver is in good condition.
Height 1.50 cm (0.59 inches)
