I have found this lovely Birmingham 1849? Snuff Box.
I beliieve Early Victorian (c1849) Sterling Silver Snuff Box
By maker of the period William Dudley, whom was known for making silver boxes of all kinds at the time per my research. Also unusual, is the pocket clip attached on the one side, I am assuming this was to ensure it does not fall out of a gentleman’s jacket pocket (I think.There is some heavy black tarnish on the inside? See photos for details.
Dimensions: 5 cm x 3.5 cm x 1.5 cm (excluding clip)
Any ideas as to value? Is it rare? Your comments will be highly appreciated.
Thanking you all the way from South Africa! Pictures below…
