Well loved and used dome top 18th Century Dutch Brass Tobacco box, great Trade purchase as this does need a bit of restoration, as you can see in the photographs the little button catch is missing and the "inner rim" on the base just under where the catch would have been has come away at the front so this will need to be bent back into shape so that it can close properly, there are bumps and bumps by the hinge but nothing that could not be sorted out.
Lovely engraved picture of a Greyhound or Long Dog as they were called at the time this has worn over the years but can still be seen, there is no engraving to the base of the box. Good size and with just a bit of work to get it back into shape will be a lovely example.
Measures about 5.25" wide, 3" deep and 1.5" high but this is difficult to measure being domed.

I only charge for the actual cost of postage or shipping, packaging is free and I always round the cost down the nearest pound for example if it costs £3.65 I only charge you £3.00, should costs prove to be cheaper on the day of dispatch a refund will be given for any difference as overseas prices quoted in my listings are based on deliveries to the US and may prove cheaper for other destinations.
