Antique snuff box, Georgian rosewood seal box, tiny old turned wooden storage case, love letter box

  • $11000 CAD

A very delicately turned wooden snuff or seal box, The bottom barely and the top sparsely decorated with turned rings. The two halves screw together on a thread. The wood is possibly a rosewood.

The box is in good condition apart from 1 hairline crack on the top and a slight scratch on the bottom. A lovely and quite rare find! Dates ca. 1820.

Inside is an antique (cracked) red wax seal which comes with the item. I don't know how old this seal is or where it came from but it adds a bit of interest to this already great item.

Size: 5.2 cm diameter, 1 cm tall
