Banded Agate Snuff Bottle

Height: 2-3/4 inches

Width: 2 inches

 

This attractive snuff bottle is rendered from a large pebble of banded agate. The interior is well hollowed and the stopper is matching beige agate. The foot ring is raised which is consistent with the period. This is a fine example of this bottle type representing the wide diversity of the agate family of snuff bottles.

In our opinion the material, workmanship and subject matter suggest a date of 1820-1880 for this fine snuff bottle.
