Hidden compartment snuff box tortoiseshell, gold and erotic miniature.

Oval snuff box in brown tortoiseshell, entirely lined with gold. The hinged lid is decorated with a floral medallion in several different gold tones. The gold framework is intricately sculpted, and a small, shell-shaped button serves to open the box. The interior bears the inscription: Mad nev de C to RB.

The snuff box features a secret compartment that contains a miniature representing an erotic scene set indoors.

Most likely English work from the beginning of the 19th century.
Circa 1820-1830.
