Information

An absolutely wonderful and we mean wonderful antique brass tobacco box and rare!

17th Century.

Dutch origin and completely original.

The lid engraved to the outer edge with banding incorporating darts and within, mythological figures set within a coastal scene and to the background, two tall sailing ships. The supporting sides of the box decorated with naive hunting scenes including a man with spear and hounds.  Verso, the outer edge again mirrors that of the lid with a further mythological scene set within but this time also depicting a sinking tall ship.

Both the lid and base are also inscribed in old Dutch although sadly this has proved difficult to read.

The lid opens to reveal a void interior.

Condition - good - hinge still functions.  Wear to engraving commensurate with age.
