A charming late17/early 18th Century gilt mounted abalone shell snuff box, the hinged lid finely engraved with winged amorini flanking a crowned shield cartouche filled with a pierced heart above a book, the front and back with hatched ground centred on circular cartouche filled with a Chinoiserie figure, the sides conforming but with birds?

The box is in good order and is not too rubbed. There is a small crack around one of the pins internally that fixes the abalone to the mount.

This is not visible externally and does not detract from the box.
