Snuff Ladle

English, late 18th c.

Oak, balleen Nice little tool for filling a personal snuffbox from the storage jar. Finely turned oak bowl, balleen handle with a spiral twist. All in a dark, glowing surface. A good insight into times gone by, and today, just another useless but beautiful antique to bring you pleasure! Good condition, tiny movement where handle meets bowl

6-1/2" l.
