For sale is a fine & rare 18th c engraved English copper tobacco box measuring approx. 3 and 3/4 inches by 2 and 1/16 inches. The lid is engraved at top " THE ANGEL POPLAR" the middle is a full bodied engraved angel and at bottom the owner's name IoN CUTTING. The angel is framed in a fanciful engraved border. The inside of the box is tinned and shows lap and pin construction. The angel is quite worn but I think it is actually depicting a poplar tree transforming into an angel.
