    Description

    Zachary Taylor: Papier-mâché Presidential Snuff Box.
    Gorgeous 3.25" snuff box with hand-painted transfer portrait of the 1848 Whig candidate against a gold background, inscribed "Zach. Taylor, President of the United States". The sides are rounded or ribbed, an unusual feature. On the back of the box is a geometric design. Has none of the typical crazing associated with these boxes. Certainly ranks as one of the finest Taylor snuff boxes we have ever had the pleasure to offer.
