The item from the book is proberly not danish.

Re: The idtntification of old snuff box

From Denmark home of hovedvandsæg.
The liquid was calle hovedvand and included spices and very much (salmiakspiritus) household ammonia.
Could be eau de cologne but the main content was salmiakspiritus

And the small room at the bottom - it is for the coin.

You are not wrong, but in many cities no guardein, so they could react by using the Copenhagen guardein for testing.

Re: Сup

the Hinnerup mark is very worn. When it was new the name Hinnerup stood with small letters inside guardein mark.
A tiny part of mark 3 is visible. only a corner.

Show us all marks, as suggested by Trev,so we could identify the maker.

Copenhagen might not be the case. The 3 towers was used all over Denmark.
Agree there is a missing mark

Arround 1900 onwards, in Denmark and Norway, shields was fashion. You had a silver shield in your overcoat - so you where sure to get your coat back again. The correct one. These shields had initials engraved.

My guess would be that this bird had a similar function.
