Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: An interesting antique snuffbox in fair to good original condition, which would make a nice addition to your snuffbox collection or tobacco/smoking related collection.
Condition: The box is in generally fair to good condition. It shows soiling throughout and a break between the front side and the base, which is tight, but you can see the light coming through and the side is not flush with the base. The inside of the box has pitting and stains. The design on both the top and bottom is worn off but is still obvious and looks good. The box has minor dings throughout with pitting and staining throughout. The hinge is intact and works as it should but the lid does not close tightly. The box has soiling throughout and a dark patina. The box has minor dings throughout. Other than that, the box is all original (except for the repair in the hinge) and is in fair condition for being over 100 years old. The box could probably use a good cleaning to bring its full beauty out, but we leave that to the discretion of the new owner. Just a nice antique pewter snuffbox worthy of a spot in any collection.
