Product Description

A very nice looking Georgian Sheffield plate lidded dinner table Snuff Box.

The box is boat shaped, with a pedestal base. It is decorated in half body fluting. The lid is hinged along the centre, so that only half of it opens. There are no salt cellar cut-outs for a spoon, nor for a spoon warmer, therefore we conclude it is a communal snuff box for after meals. The base has a scratched J. Drayton (owner?), but no maker’s marks. Condition is good. There are a few minor nibbles and the silver has partly worn on the barrel hinge. Unusual piece.

Size: 10.2 x 7 x 7 cm (4 x 2 ¾ x 2 ¾ inches)
Weight: 184 g
