    Description

    James Monroe: A Prohibitively Rare Papier Mâché Snuff Box. Very few items contemporary to his presidency have survived, and probably not more than three or four examples of this box are known. These boxes were made by applying an engraved paper to the top, and interestingly this is the same engraved portrait used to produce the Monroe "pewter rim" sold in our October 21st Frent Collection auction. This is the U.I. "Chick" Harris collection example. Diameter 3.5."
