The internal base section has this brass looking part which rotates, if the brass section was deeper you would say it was for pills but there is very little depth on it for this purpose. Its Polish i...

Help with Russian Silver Snuff Box

I wonder, Can anyone assist with pretty much all of this box. 1/. What does in English the wording on lid say? 2/.Does anyone recognise maker, I am assuming it will be late 19th century. 3/. The scenes to the lid and base, are they of anything that anyone recognises? https://i.postimg.cc/N0B16dHm/P2...
