A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

wood and white metal snuff box


wood and white metal snuff box this is a wood snuff box of oblong rounded shape with white metal refinements on the sides and on the lid.
The lid is decorated with a white metal Roman Catholic Church monstrance (ostensorium: partly rubbed) encrusted on a wood base.
The reserve on the white metal lid's edge is engraved "VICTORIA" over "B.F."
Unknown are its age and provenance.
The snuff box measures 2 3/4 x 1 1/2 in (cm. 7 x 4,5) and was bought from an Italian dealer in an antique market.
This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. In this page there are some links to silver and antique dealers websites
