A Rare Enamel Snuffbox in the Form of Female Genitalia

United Kingdom
Circa: 1780-1800
Size: 3 3/8" (l) x 1 5/8" (w) x 1 1/4" (h).
An overt twist on the traditional enamel or cowry shell pewter or silver mounted snuff box.

A few years ago, I had a similar example with glazed pubic hair—“unshaven” it is slightly more abstract and looks like a Hindu yoni graphic—which, of course represents the vulva.

Literature: A related example is illustrated in, ART OF THE LIMOGES BOX, p. 40.

HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES AVAILABLE.

Condition: Excellent with wear commensurate with age including a thin hairline to the box.

Price: $5,500.00
