Accessories:  18th Century Brass Engraved Dutch Tobacco Box
Tradition holds that this fine tobacco box was recovered from the Thames River by a mud lark. It definitely was excavated as the iron pin fixing the top to the bottom has disintegrated. the octagonal box is decorated all around; the bottom with circular devices and fronds, the top with a city-scape of city of Delft. Engraved "Delft" on the top above buildings, two windmills and dike, etc.
Very good antique condition. Top is fixed with an old pin. Interior and exterior surface having mottled patination.
Dutch, ca. 1740

Brass with engraving  5 1/2 inches long, 2 1/4 inches deep, 1 1/4 inches tall  $975
