THIS IS A NICE VINTAGE SNUFF BOX OR SMALL CIGERETTE BOX. IT HAS A BAMBOO MOTIF ON THE TOP BOARDER OF THE LID. THIS IS INSET WITH A BEAUTIFUL ORGANIC NATURAL T-SHELL PANEL.THE T-SHELL PANEL IS FINELY POLISHED ON THE TOP SIDE OF THE BOX. THE CASE IS ENGINE TURNED AND FINELY MADE. IT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION BUT THE CASE IS IN AN UNCLEANED STATE. AS I WAS NOT SURE HOW TO CLEAN IT I HAVE LEFT THIS JOB FOR THE BUYER. SOME PEOPLE WOULD PROBABLY LEAVE AS IS.THE SHELL PANEL IS REMOVABLE SO I PHOTOGRAPHED IT AS SUCH FOR THAT PERSON THAT MIGHT WISH TO USE THE MATERIAL DIFFERENTLY OR FOR A RESTORATION PROJECT.

SIZE OF BOX:3 3/4 W. X 2 1/2 DEEP X 1 1/4 H.

MARKINGS: STAMPED ON THE INSIDE OF THE LID ("MADE IN ITALY").
