Lovely little paper mache snuff box. Black lacquered finish with gold leaf border and slogan, “Never Be Idle.” Perhaps this was meant as a pun, since taking a few pinches of snuff has never been much of an activity. In any case, this is a nifty example in a less frequently found smaller size. Lid fits tight.
