Hand Made Welsh Brass Snuff Box Antique c1891. 

This lovely little brass box has been clearly hand made and decorated by the owner James Williams of Resolven in Wales and dated to 1891. Most likely for tobacco or snuff the extra decoration has been stamped by using the letters Y and S. As a mining community you can imagine this as the kind of item that would be taken down the pit in the pocket each day.

This is a great and honest piece for any collector with lots of history.

Dimensions: 6.8 x 4.5 x 2.5 cm or 2.7 x 1.8 x 1 inches.

Weight: 49 grams or 31.5 penny weight.
