A Tunbridgeware Sovereign Holder in rosewood with geometric roundels of mosaic. Dated to about 1870 these items can be seen with different sizes of roundel and therefore varying amounts of geometric patterns when made by Tunbridgeware manufactories. This one is generously decorated with 6 different designs. Often called “Puzzle Snuff Balls” or “Drug Smuggler Balls” access is gained by pushing the selected roundel to expose a tube with a screw cap. This is in excellent condition.
