An exceptionally rare Georgian silver gilt table snuff box containing the superbly painted minature of a gentleman. The 9 part hinge is very tight and the top closes well. The interior has original gilding and is fully hallmarked on the bottom and part marked on the lid. The box itself is in excellent almost unused condition. The painting which is housed under a glass dome has hairlines cracks to the edges. This is a visually stunning box made by Daniel Hockley of London in 1810. A great addition to any collection.
