    description
    There is much more to this exquisite Georgian snuffbox than meets the eye. Beautifully crafted of striking burlwood, this unassuming box features a lining of precious tortoiseshell and a false bottom, which, when gently unscrewed, reveals a miniature erotic painting of exceptional detail. Erotic antiques are perhaps the most provocative on the market today. To find such an item, in such excellent condition, is quite a treat.

    Circa 1830
