19th c. Miniature Papier Mache Box: Salesman's Sample?

1.25" x 3/4" x 3/8" tall

In excellent condition without repairs. The decoration on the lid is made of silver (which I have not polished.)

I have never seen a snuff box this small so I thought it might be a salesman's sample? --- or something for a doll? --- or to hold something other than snuff?

The tight "snap shut" closure would make this a usable and unusual pill box for purse or pocket.
