Coconut Carved Snuff Box
The lid is formed of a single part; with the outer pierced and carved with scroll and foliate design. The remainder of the top has several patterns that form a handsome design. The opposite side a draped framework with a woman with bird in hand as a dog is barking at her lap. The brass hinge is hand made, pinned in place and conforms nicely to the shape of the piece.
The coconut snuff box has a dark patina with one central crack from top to bottom on the framework side. It does not effect the integrity of the coconut. 2 3/4"L x 2 1/4"W x 1 1/8"H
