18th Century Snuff or Patch Box with its exterior entirely hand decorated in the manner of Vernis Martin, varnish layering with paint, the favorite of French Queen Marie-Antoinette. The scene is a convivial scene of country gentry enjoying a drink during the hunt. Fantastic hand painting portrays four men and a lady having a drink in the country side, two horses are held by a groom in the distance.  Entirely hand painted and in remarkably fine condition for something of this age. A precious little work of art!

The lid was professionally repaired long ago.  A stunning addition to your collection of antique French, English and German painted wood and papier mache snuff boxes. Decorative,  this will display beautifully with your other objets 'd art on a desk, in your vitrine or with other wood boxes from the 1800's such as those by Stobwasser.

  • Measures 3-3/8" x 3/4".
