Description

Roend partially gilt Russian silver snuffbox. Nielloed medalios on both sides. The nielloed medallion on the top of the box seem to be a semi cartographic in nature, and depicts a siberian town, possibly Veliky Ustiug. Very heavy gauge, this semm to confirm the small old ticket inside the box from the 1960-70.
” Box by Alexei Mochnin, Veliky Ustiug. C S T Goldberg and others, L’orfevriere et la bijouterie russes aux XV-XIX siecles, Moscow 1967 , fig .51 ….”

I do not have this publication so I cannot checque or verify , but obviously this box or a similar one is illustrated.

Weight : 233.6 grams
