This 1790 brass Snuff Box has a combination lock on the cover.

Antique Snuff Box from Scotland

 A Scottish Snuff Box in my collection. The silver band around the top is engraved with "John Mackay Spirit Merchant Edinburgh 1820"

There is a shield but I cannot make out the engravings, and under that it is engraved "obt 29th May 1847"
