Code: MS 7903
A beautifully made "pressed" Horn Gentleman's Snuff Box....very interesting scene on the lid...it shows a soldier upon horseback with his pistol drawn, pointing it at a group of people, who look like Pirates....one with a "peg" leg playing a fiddle and one leading a bear.....the underneath is also nicely decorated with a central flower motif....the box is in superb condition with no visible damage and is signed Bradwell......Thomas Bradwell is listed in a local Sheffield Directory of 1821 as a die-sinker, engraver and castor of Typographic Ornaments at Bridgehouses.
