    Description

    Superb Large C. 1829 Andrew Jackson Papier-Mache Snuff Box. Mature civilian portrait depicts Jackson as he might have looked about the time of his first Inauguration in 1829. Around the bust: "Andrew Jackson, President of the United States." This oversized variety (diameter 3.75") is perhaps the nicest of several known varieties of Jackson snuff boxes. This is an especially appealing copy, with great color and surface, and just the slightest hint of incipient surface crazing; definitely one of the finer examples we have seen of the type, so prone to heavy crazing, damage, and discoloration. For accuracy, we note a couple of extremely trivial bits of rim damage, which are utterly inconsequential, but which could easily be restored if one felt the need. For someone seeking an ideal "type" example, or for the specialist concerned with condition and quality, this is a standout offering.
