RARE GEORGIAN 18TH CENTURY DIORAMA ROSE SNUFF BOX WITH A PAINTING INSIDE THE LID. This is a Rare Beautiful Georgian 18th century Flowers Design Round Snuff Box with a rare painting to the inside, this i believe was crafted circa 1790 making it around 230 years old, this is a Beautiful Rare Georgian Snuff Box has a raised Domed Glass Lid, inside the Domed Glass you will see Beautiful Textured Gold Roses on a wonderful white Enamel Panel, inside the Glass Dome are Strands of Gold Colour Wire with a diamond design above and below the wonderful Flower Panel, you will also see delicate gold wire scrolls that seem lose within the glass dome, not only is this a wonderful Gold Rose Diorama which mean a 3D in miniature but also its more special that just that, if you take a look at the inside of the lid you will now see the White Panel has the most beautiful hand painted enamel scene of a a bird in flight and another bird on the ground all within a landscape scene, this is so very rare. The Rim of the Lid is Gold Gilt and it pulls off and back on nice and tight fit, the quality of the craftsmahip is superb, it is very tactile and is in good condition with just a small hairline to the body and has a nice tight Vacuum Seal to the Lid that would have kept the Snuff nice and Dry, the quality of the craftsmanship is superb, this would have once belonged to a wealthy Lady in the Georgian period and been used daily, this was in a time when things were so very different, if this Box could talk i can imagine it would hold some facsinating stories from a different time, it is very tactile and once held feels wonderful, this will add something special to any collection as it is very rare to have a hand painted scene to the inside.
