Snuff Box
« on: October 16, 2019, 06:39:30 PM »
 Back in early Sep Micah2 posted a snuff box that he had just picked up. I used his for an example for this one.
 It is about 3 1/2 X 1 X 2". The body is Horn, the top is a piece of Beef Bone, nailed to the underside is a piece of Pine covered with Tin that fits in the opening. The sliding door is Brass as are the guides. The bottom is Pine covered with Tin and decorated with Brass tacks.
 Carla painted the design. Not the best Pix.

That is an impressive piece as always Tim. I think that would complete most anyones kit for being out in the wilderness. Thanks for sharing.

Y’all hit another home run. That is just the coolest.
Your efforts go together so smoothly. Carla is really talented with her paintwork, eh?
That box would be cool for many things. A great bag addition.

Almost nice enough to make me want to use snuff!

I have long been fascinated with snuff box's. That one is a wonderful representation. I like the slide.
