snuff box

My first snuff box. I am going to start a collection.

Mid 1800s Agate Box, Brass
Size: 1.75 x 1.5 x 0.5 Inches
Condition: Very Good. A couple dents in the metal frame.
Description: A very high quality mid-Victorian agate box- probably a snuff box. The agate specimens are particularly beautiful with rusty carnelian swirls and purple tinted gray crystals.

Yes, like Lord Grantham on Downton Abbey.
Are you like me and impatient to find out things with the show? Even though I've spoiled some surprises I still can't wait to watch each week.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

Downton fans, unite!

Ooooh...I love your new snuff box. Very special.

I want to know what on earth the story is with Mr. Gordon. And from the preview, hoping that Cora is ok?!

I don't know the storyline on Mr. Gordon but I am curious too. I will leave you in suspense about Cora but, I do know.
