Crafted of fine 935 fineness of silver, this Viennese snuffbox is a testament to the country's time-honored and renowned tradition of enameling. The lid is graced by an intricate pastoral scene surrounded by a border of delicately hand-painted flowers, while transparent green guilloché enamel adorns the sides. The interior lid is etched with a motif that mirrors that of the outer lid.

Hallmarked with the Austrian hoopoe bird mark indicating the 935 silver fineness and the "W" for Vienna
