A very rare George III silver double snuff box. Although it is unmarked the style of engraving and general design suggests a date of around 1760. The navette shaped box has two lids with concelled hinges and has bright cut engraving around all the edges. Both the interior compartments have original gilding and both lids fit tightly. Generally the box is in excellent condition with no damage or repairs. A stunning snuff box that would look good in any collection.
