Description

York Silver Snuff Box with York Town Mark

York hallmarked for 1807, this antique York silver snuff box is by Robert Cattle & James Barber.

The condition of the piece is very good although, through use, there are two very minor bruises and the usual light scuffing which one would expect.

York was not a prolific snuff box manufacturing centre and, indeed, many boxes made there were not marked as such.  Consequently, this piece is a very scarce example and can even be described as rare.

The piece measures 75 mm wide by 56 mm deep by 21 mm high.
