Rare Antique Inscribed Wooden Snuff Box 1893 World's Fair Columbian Exposition:
We are pleased to offer this very rare miniature antique box etched with a "Bird's Eye View of The World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893" as inscribed on the box lid along with a very detailed view. No flaws are apparent on this well kept treasure, just a minimal amount of wear. It measures approximately 1 3/4" wide by 2 3/4" long, slightly larger at the base, and 1 1/4" high. It has a wonderful golden patina on the wood and the brass hinge. Its construction features tiny fine dovetailed rounded corners and a partitioned interior. The bottom has a worn black coating of some sort. I am unsure as to its original use but it appears to perhaps be a snuff box of sorts and seems to be quite rare as I have seen nothing comparable. Free shipping and insurance are included on this unique item! Please see our pictures and ask any questions. Read our response and buy with confidence! Thank you!Posted with MobilePosted with Mobile
