Round composititon gold-mounted snuff box with rope-decoration. The lid is set with a very unusual glazed watercolour miniature of a baby suckling its mother's breast. It is signed on the obverse. The lid pulls off to reveal its tortoiseshell-lined interior for holding snuff and the internal gold mount shows the assay marks of Paris 1782/1789.
