Snuffbox coin ball
These turned wooden balls with secret compartments are often described as snuffboxes but were more likely used as coin boxes. This early 19th century example is turned from richly patinated lignum vitae. The box compartment is accessed by pushing from the back to reveal the ring turned lid.
