A FINE GEORGIAN SILVER COWRIE SHELL SNUFF BOX - BENJAMIN LAVER - LONDON - C1781

A Fine Georgian Silver Cowrie Shell Snuff Box.

This is an exquisite Georgian cowrie shell snuff box with a solid silver hinged lid which has lovely chased decoration.

The box is hallmarked inside the lid with just the makers mark which is not unusual.

London maker "B.L" for Benjamin Laver c1781-1788.

I have lightly cleaned the top lid but left the interior, the hinge works fine, there is just a little bit of rubbing around the rim of the lid & a small section is missing on the inside of the lid, see photos 18 & 19. Light surface scratch marks to the top of the shell.

Measurments

L 7.2, W 5.1, H 3.5 cm, weight 52.4 grams.
