Horn Snuff Box In Book Form - For Sale

Horn Snuff Box In Book Form
Price: $550.00
Sometimes the chic of an object lies not it its perfect preservation but rather in its marks of a well-used life. In its youth, this white-horn snuff box, formed to resemble a missal, was probably alive with brilliant enamels applied to the geometric designs engraved on its top and sides. Now it is smooth and worn like a piece of driftwood, the horn taking on the look of fossilized ivory. Approximately 3-3/4 inches by 2-1/2 inches by 7/8 of an inch deep, it is French and dated 1863 in Roman numerals on the front. (For a finely preserved example, see Trocadero item 418483.)
