This small precious snuff box has been built using only the finest materials, including solid gold, which has been intricately and delicately adorned with enamel on its exterior. The decorations on the base of the box show a bouquet of flowers on pink ground, while the top of the box shows musical instruments and flowers on blue ground. Around the edges of the base and top there are floral decorations with gold highlights. The sides of the box are decorated similarly, with gilt foliate decorations on turquoise ground in between enamelled still life panels. The interior of the box is solid gold and the lid can be opened via a hinge at the back.
