.
The art of producing papier mache goes back and back and back in time. Some say it dates to the 2nd Century AD.

The main attractions of this particular box (about 80-90 years old) are the fine design & beautiful condition; there is no chipping at all—uncommon for papier mache boxes.

The hand painted crescent moon, large center star and wreath are still clear. Just a bit of the surrounding design (Greek key) has faded.

There’s no mark on the box.

The rest of the description with more pictures continues below this memo about my two "Prime Directives:"
First: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and everything starts at $9, sometimes even less. I never end auctions early.
Second: I rarely clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. Normally I push enough dust aside to note any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun. Why not place a little tiny bid right now so's you don't forget about it later.

I’m thinking the design should offer clues as to country of origin.

But I’ve looked & can’t find anything to pinpoint where the box was made. France & England are just two possibilities among oodles of others.

SIZE: About 2-3/4” diameter x 1” high.

It’s almost true that you just can’t have too many antique decorated snuff boxes. You’ll be happy with this one!

Good Luck!

My preferred method of payment is PayPal.
