A Beautiful Snuff Mull

This lovely little snuff mull is a recent acquisition. It's about 9cm tall and is wonderfully tactile as well as being snuff proof and perfectly suited to carrying in a pocket. The dispensing mechanism deposits a measured quantity of snuff on the back of the hand. I think it is almost certainly Scottish and possibly late 19th century in date.
