Silver Scottish snuff mull.

This has a wonderful agate top, no damage.  

There is an inscription on the front with two dates 1755 which will be the date of manufacture, no marks on this piece, but tests as silver. The other date is 1858.  Perhaps it was passed on to a son at this later date.  It reads "den d'amitie sincere et affection'.

Very typically Scottish in design, a wonderful early hinge to back.
