Anthropomorphic Snuff Box

$ 1,850
  • Description
    An unusually large walnut snuff box in the form of a human leg fashioned from a single block of timber having carved brogue and hobnail decoration, English or Scottish.
    While shoe form snuff boxes are fairly common, this is the only one we have encountered which depicts an entire leg. Also, because of its size, this was probably more of a communal or shared box rather than a pocket sized one for personal use.
