$277


Offered is a fine and rare Low Tile & Metal Mfg. Co. table top snuff box with a classic high relief portrait tile depicting a man with a mustache and beard and wearing a laurel wreath on his head. I assume this represents a Greek or Roman god. The finely detailed relief emerges from a beautiful translucent teal green glaze. The round tile is mounted in a low profile bezel in the lid of the finely made brass box made and signed by the Low Tile & Metal Manufacturing Co. in Chelsea MA. The tightly fitting removable lid has a finely knurled outer rim to improve the grip when removing it. This form is extremely rare and this example is in exceptional condition with no wear or damage to the tile and no dings, dents or other damage to the brass.

Someone has been nice enough to inform me that I neglected to include the dimensions; they are as follows Diameter 4 3/4" Overall height including the thickness of the tile 1 1/2".Someone else asked if this is indeed the same company as the J. & J.G. Low Art Tile Works. While I have found little information on it, it was indeed a subsidiary of the art tile company, though their production seems to have been very limited, especially compared to the volume of tiles they produced.
