Re: Oval Engraved Snuff Box Gilt Interior Hinged Lid

Hi,



I showed it to someone.
The gilding was remarkable.

Re: Who and what is it?

Hi Peter,

Often they use the name of a tea shovel but it is a sugar shovel, simply because it makes more impression

Re: Oval Engraved Snuff Box Gilt Interior Hinged Lid
