RARE BEAUTIFUL GEORGIAN 18ct GOLD PIQUE INLAID & Faux TORTOISESHELL OVAL SNUFF BOX. This is a Beautiful French Georgian 18ct Gold Pique Inlaid & Faux Tortoiseshell Oval Snuff Box, i believe this to have been crafted in France c1800 making it around 219 years old, this Stunning Oval Snuff Box has Stunning 18ct Gold Pique Inlaid work with a Large Peacock or Peahen to the Centre and Floral and Scroll Patterns all around the Box, it also has Butterflies or Bees flying from Flower to Flower, and the detailing is Beautiful and all have been crafted in 18ct Gold tested, the front of the Lid has a Waved Pattern large Thumb piece made out of 18ct Gold. Even the screws on the back are made of Gold, the Hinge is good and Strong and the Lid opens and closes with a smooth feel and is air tight, the inside of the Oval Box has a lovely Gilt finish to it, this would have been owned by someone Wealthy in the Georgian Period and is a true Quality Antique, condition is good for its age with a repair to the back of the lid near hinge, some small wear to the tortoiseshell around the box and little pieces of Gold missing from the pique work, but doesnt detract from the beauty of this Antique and is only mentioned for accuracy and this would add something special to any collection.
