Ref: 1915


5.5 cm

An earlly C19th example of a lacquered papier mache snuff box, hand enamelled with a lively scene of a wheeled troika pulled by a bay, a grey and a brown horse, with a driver and three passengers.  Maker's mark to the interior of the lid, possibly by the Lutukin factory.  There is some historic wear to the surface, but the details of the horses, cart and passengers can still be seen.
