Fabulous antique French 3.5" diameter table snuff box with hand painted portrait miniature of a young beauty in lace bonnet, exceptional detail with vivid coloring and immense visual appeal!  Here's a wonderful old shell snuff box, French in origin, and sporting a fine hand painted portrait miniature of a beauty up top. The box itself is solid shell, not just shell-lined, and is in quite fine shape.  One small age or drying crack in the lid panel around the 5 o'clock position.  The old cover glass is undamaged and the portrait is also wonderfully preserved though with a bit of what looks like slight moisture marking around the edges in places. A nice large table snuff with a wonderfully vivid and large oval portrait, it's a wonderful addition to your collection of either snuff boxes or portrait miniatures.

Very good condition, age & materials considered.  No warping to the 2 halves, which fit nicely together. Thick and rather heavy pieces of shell, both top and bottom, and a wonderful piece.  As noted, some signs of moisture effects around the outer edge of the painting.  See pictures for all measurements.
