Stunning Georgian Faux Ivory Tortoise Shell Snuff Box Signed Portrait C1800 Nr For Sale
This top quality Georgian snuff box measures 78mm (3'') x 24mm (1'') deep and weighs 93 grams. The lid has a hand painted on faux ivory miniature portrait of a maiden with a signature to the bottom right which is hard to read but my best guess is J Guillot or similar (photo10) with slightly convex glass cover and a gilt metal rim. The box itself is beautifully crafted from Faux ivory and faux tortoise shell in a banded arrangement with a fantastic rich patina only achieved through age. As is typical with this type of material there are a couple of age related cracks and a missing piece of tts highlighted in photos 8&9, there is also a slight kink in the top bezel that holds the glass in place. I am sure with a little research it would be possible to find the artist and perhaps even the sitter as this is a piece that would only have been owned by the most well off of gentleman. A fine quality period pocket snuff in good honest condition. International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote.
Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included.
If you have any questions please do contact me.
All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit.
If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage. All purchases must be piad for within 3 days of the end of the sale unless agreed otherwise.
