Dimensions: Height = 2 cm (1"), Width = 7 cm (3"), Depth = 5 cm (2") - Weight: 100.8 Grammes - Troy: 3.24oz.

The snuffbox was assayed in 1808, the partnership of Robert Cattle and James Barber being formed on the 1st of January of that year.

The records of the York Assay Office make mention of only 2 or 3 snuffboxes being made by this firm around this period.
