18th century Dutch hand wrought brass oval engraved tobacco box.
18th century (before 1750) Dutch hand wrought oval brass tobacco box with all over engraving, and profound textual expression.
Dutch makers specialised in engraved boxes with common subjects such as humorous scenes of smoking, drinking, sports, domestic life, ships and sailors. The Netherlands was one of the biggest traders in tobacco and related products.
Both lid and base are engraved with scenes flanked by text, and outlined by moulded bands.
The text reads:
Eerder met een span
is oost en west te raken
als dat men alle man
kan pas en maken
This translates to:
It is easier to connect east and west with a bow than to satisfy everyone.
The balance of the box is all over engraved with lines and feathered decoration.
The hinge is strong and very decorative, and the box closes firmly.
Size-5.5 inches long by 3 inches wide by 1.5 inches high.
This tobacco box is a very good size and weight, having a thick gauge of brass, and no damage or repairs. The centre portion of the engraving is a bit worn from age and use. The colour and patina is beautiful, and feels wonderful to hold.
A great addition for the collector of brass, boxes, novelty items or antique smoking requisites.
In very good overall condition, this is a lovely example of an early tobacco box.
