GUNSIGHT ANTIQUES

Illustrated here with a quarter for size comparison is an eye appealing, all original, decorated birch bark snuff box. Dating from the mid-1800s through the later 19th century these little boxes were fashioned of native pine veneered with birch bark then finished with a coat of period bug shellac. The early examples offer an attractive age patina that comes to the period finish only with time. Decorated with a moose on the hinged lid and with a geometric design familiar to native American enthusiasts around the sides, this little antique snuff box will be of interest to tobacciana folks and all manner of smalls enthusiasts to include Civil War personals collectors. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!
