Rare Antique 18TH C GEORGIAN COWRIE Shell & Pewter Snuff Box, London c1780 - image 1 of 7

A Rare Antique Georgian 18th Century Cowrie Shell Snuff Box with Pewter mounts and engraved. There is a name and date scratched into the top. It's hard to read but looks like " Mr Thomas Church, Dawley, Salor, 1747" and in the inside is the same thing,
The pewter lid opens and shuts very well for its age with the handmade hinge being so precisely made as well as the collar around the shell which is in perfect shape.
Overall a very tactile and early example which displays beautifully.

Size: 2 5/8" long x 1 1/2" high x 2 5/8" wide.
