Round composititon gold-mounted snuff box with rope-decoration.  The lid is set with a very unusual glazed watercolour miniature of a baby suckling its mother's breast.  It is signed on the obverse.  The lid pulls off to reveal its tortoiseshell-lined interior for holding snuff and the internal gold mount shows the assay marks of Paris 1782/1789.
