Three Genuine Tortoiseshell Boxes for sale in Geneva, NY

1 of 2
I am selling some of my tortoise shell boxes. This lot is for three and includes: Cigarette case: Hinged lid, solid, excellent condition. This is not a joined piece, meaning that the lid is a single piece, the bottom is a single piece. Hardware is brass. Cigarette case: Hinged lid, filigree, excellent condition. This is not a joined piece, meaning that the lid is a single piece, the bottom is a single piece. Hardware is brass, though the inside of the hinge looks like gold. The lid has been filigree carved with beautiful vines and flowers. The box opens via a push button. Snuff box: round, separate lid, silver or pewter medallion. This is a joined piece. The lid is solid. The bottom is solid. The lip used to capture the lid is a separate sheet. Medallion seems to show a pair of peacocks. Medallion is held on with minute rivets. Each piece is from the early to mid-19th century. They still transmit a lot of light, but could stand a good cleaning and waxing by a qualified restoration house.

Safe Trade


Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
