An antique Scottish Goat horn snuff box with a hinged silver mount and cover that features a beautiful banded Agate in its' center. The cornucopia shaped goat horn is representative of the horn of plenty-after Zeus broke the goat Amalthea's horn and then promised to always have it full of whatever fruits she desired. Made in Scotland circa 1860. Unmarked, excellent condition. The mull measures approximately 2 3/4" X 1 3/4" X 3" (L. X W X H)
