A wondrous little snuff box, made of beautifully figured burr walnut, elaborately carved into an irregular eight-sided cylinder.

Inside the cylinder is a smaller one, carved in straight-grained horn. An L-shaped slot carved into the horn enables the user to lock the box.

An exceptional bit of folk carving, and a wonderful addition to a collection of miniatures, burl, or horn.

English, ca. 1840

Length: 3 ¼”
