This round old Snuff Box~Perfume Bottle~or Poison Vessel has ornate metal filigree scroll work leaves at the top with what looks like small natural red coral and natural aged turquoise or similar stones. Good color and patina. An interesting gift or add this to a collection. Looks like silver, appears very similar to some coin silver I used to own however there are no markings to verify that so no guarantee on that. This beauty comes from an estate. The spoon dipper or dabber applicator is attached to the stopper cap with a fine sturdy metal chain. Condition is overall very good, just a couple of dings in the metal from being old and from use, an area where it looks like chalk in the metalwork. What you see is the actual item you are bidding on to buy. All sales are final, the photos are the description please view them all. Size is pocket or pocketbook: height 2 1/8 inches by 1 3/4 inches across. on this appealing old container.
