ENAMELED Silver SNUFF BOX -Palermo Opera House-

Stamped inside lid .800 as seen in photo.
Circa Mid-late 19th C.
MEASURES: 3 x 2 x 5/8 inches
This box displays very well and is in very good overall condition. No chips, dings, dents or repairs found. There is some wear from age and use. Very fine surface wear (which can only be seen with very strong light) and a very small bit of edge wear.
