S/2376 Antique Treen 19th Century Mahogany Puzzle Snuff Box in the form of a Ship
A lovely mahogany puzzle snuff box in the form of a ship, having ebony line inlay, gunports and initialled with the letter 'H'. The lid swivels to expose a blank surface, but by moving the first section back it shows there is a receptacle under for snuff. It now rests on a later fruitwood stand. The whole has a good honey colour and patination.
