An exceptionally fine George III cast Bsket Weave Pocket Snuff Box made in London in 1810 by John Reilly.

This exceptional example is palely gilded and is unusually cast. The box has a slightly rounded form and is decorated all over with basket weave designs. The basket weave has niello in the design to highlight the patterning. The interior displays fine original gilding and this example is very well marked. This is almost certainly the finest basket weave snuff box we have offered over the years and it is in excellent condition. Cast pocket Snuff Boxes are rare and this is certainly the heaviest we have offered. A very fine box !
