This is a wonderful rare Victorian solid silver Novelty Bird (Wren) Snuff Box, this wonderful snuff Box dates to circa 1880 making it over 130 years old, this Bird Snuff Box crafted beautifully, it is in the form of a Bird which looks like a Wren, it has the most stunning very detailed embossed and chased decoration, it is so life like with the pretty detailed wings that curve down the body to the feathered trail, he has a delightful face with chubby cheeks and a regal beak, the detailing is exquisite, to open you will see the bird sits upon the hinged lid which protrudes out to be used as a thumb piece for opening.The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a wealthy Victorian Gentleman and used daily in a time when snuff taking was the fashion, many years ago, this is so very tactile and once held it has the most wonderful feel.
