An Early 19th Century Snuff Box with Portrait Engraving of Queen Anne, Prince George of Denmark and their Son, Prince William Duke of Gloucester. Prince William was their only child to survive infancy, but died at the age of 11. Queen Anne was succeeded by her second cousin, George I of Hanover.

The blue base appears to be of laquered papier mache with a tortoiseshell interior and two thin lines of applied detail. The red and blue cover contains a glazed portrait engraving surrounded by a gilt metal ring. The inner blue circle surrounded by what appears to be a tooled red leather, or textured covering, also with two thin lines of applied detail.

In very good condition with no glass damage, or repair. Some cracking to the tortoiseshell interior of the cover (photo 6). No chips, or losses to the inner rim. The cover loose fitting to the base. Higher wear to the red covering.
