A rare Black Lacquer Papier Mache Chinoiserie Snuff Box. Made most probably in London circa 1840.

The Snuff Box is broad rectangular in form with a slightly domed cover. This unusual piece displays a very crisp and detailed lacquer cover depicting unusual Chinoiserie scenes including three figures, possibly monks, in traditional dress with a Chinese building by the side, together with trees and exotic plants. This piece is in quite excellent condition.
