A George IV Scottish Volunteer Regiment silver Snuffbox.

A Scottish Snuffbox, circa 1830, struck with maker’s marks only for A.G. Wighton, Edinburgh. The lid of the box is engraved: ‘The Grenadier Compy. 4th Regt. N.B. Militia to Lieut D. Morison as a Testimony of their Esteem 27th April 1802.’ The date of the inscription is curious – perhaps the lid panel was made for another [earlier] box or this box was made in its entirety to replace an earlier box. The condition of the box, by a silversmith who made a number of high quality boxes in the 1830’s and 1840’s, suggests that it has not been altered in any way.
