Quartz and gold box with enamel and diamond, Rozet and Fishmeinster

Circular quartz snuff box set in a gold and enamel mounting. The hinged lid is embellished with an octagonal medallion featuring a sphinx lying under a star in a royal blue background. The medallion is framed with four rinceaux motifs. The mounting is intricately sculpted with palmettes and accented with blue enamel as well as a band of white enamel. A button decorated with a small diamond serves to open the box. A monogram on the body of the box features the letters GW and is topped with a crown.
This snuff box belonged to Mrs. H. Holt, whose family reportedly received the snuff box from a minister of Austria’s Emperor Franz Joseph I.
Monogrammed gold mark: RNF for Rozet and Fishmeinster.
