19th Century Erotic Snuff Box

We are proud to offer a rare example of a mid-19th Century erotic snuff box, in the form of a praying bishop. A finely carved example with two hidden compartments, one for storing snuff and the other reveals a phallic form. This item is in great condition considering its age and previous use.
Size in inches approx.: H 4” x W 1.5” x D 2”
Period: 19th Century
Material: Wood
Origin: Europe
Condition: Good

Completely solid in structure and form, naturally faded across the wooden surface. Aged patina due to use and overall, in great condition for its age, no loss of breaks and both hidden compartment slide open if a tad tight. It is exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas on this piece. Therefore, we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections / condition is unclear to avoid disappointment when purchasing.

Period: 

1880
