In the form of a Turkish slipper with a Louis XV heel, this plump little wooden snuff box has a hidden trick opening device that makes it necessary to perform two actions before the contents are available. Of a fine fruitwood, with the “lock” of mahogany and a locking plate of engraved copper, it is a Continental creation of the early Nineteenth Century, in excellent condition and around 3-3/4 inches long by 1-3/4 inches high by 1-1/2 inches wide.
