An unusual 19th century mahogany coffin shaped antique snuff box / puzzle box. Image 1 shows the top sliding back and a verse saying 'puzzle find the stiff un'.
Image 2 snows a drawer pulling out with a carved wooden man inside, image 3 shows the base sliding open where a small amount of snuff can be held.
These are difficult to find especially with the verse still present, sometimes the verses refer to the fact that if you take snuff you will end up in a coffin.
It measures 5.5cm l x 2cm w x 1.8cm h
