Oval antique snuffbox, unmarked probably English ca. 1720-30
Normally these type of boxes were made with a cast and engraved top panel.
At the end of the seventeenth century, during the reign of Louis the XIV between 1660-1714 over 50.000 Huguenot / French Calvinists / escaped religious persecutions from Catholic France. Many of them were extremely able and talented artisan/craftsman. They brought with them an entirely different taste, fashion, design aspect. This infusion of “difference” re energized many aspects of craft and trade, and some of England’s greatest silversmiths came from Huguenot heritage.
This box is either made by a Huguenot silversmith or by one greatly influenced by them.
