Handsome antique snuff box with a flip lid. I believe it is made of a natural material, and I believe the metal pins/encrustations you see may be a precious metal (not tested). Measures 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″. In terms of condition, there is some overall age; a crack at the back of the box, which appears to be old and does not appear to affect functioning or stability. Some nick on the underside. Please see photos for details.
