Snuff Spoons and Boxes

Snuff Spoons and Boxes

By the 18th century, snuff had become the tobacco product of choice among the elite. Snuff use reached a peak in England during the reign of Queen Anne (1702–14).[2] It was during this time that England's own production of ready-made snuff blends started, home-made blending was common.[2] Prominent snuff users included Pope Benedict XIII who repealed the smoking ban set by Pope Urban VIII; King George III's wife Queen Charlotte, referred to as 'Snuffy Charlotte', who had an entire room at Windsor Castle devoted to her snuff stock; and King George IV, who had his own special blends and hoarded a stockpile of snuff.[1][2] NapoleonLord Nelson, the Duke of WellingtonMarie AntoinetteAlexander PopeSamuel Johnson and Benjamin Disraeli all used snuff, as well as numerous other notable persons.[1][2] The taking of snuff helped to distinguish the elite members of society from the common populace, which generally smoked its tobacco.[5] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snuff_(tobacco))

Modern snuff boxes are made from a variety of woods, pewter and even plastic and are manufactured in surprising numbers due, largely, to snuff's resurgence amongst tobacco connoisseurs and ex-smokers. This has been driven by online special interest sites such as Snuffhouse.org and a new generation of internet based retailers. Reproduction silver snuff boxes are still marketed by the companies Ari. D. Norman and Regnas. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decorative_box)
