S/2402 Antique Treen 19th Century Beech Puzzle Shoe Snuff Box

An interesting puzzle shoe snuff box in beech, depicting a leather shoe or boot, having a crease across the toe, suggesting he was a labourer. The back section turns on a screw and the forward section is held in place by a small bone catch, that when released allows access to a long shallow receptacle for the snuff. The whole has a lovely rich colour and original patination.
