North Nguni Snuff Container - South Africa

A very fine North Nguni snuff container. Wirework snuff containers vary greatly in quality. The container on offer is exceptional for a number of reasons, including the precise and exquisite two-tone wirework ornamentation, the beautifully colored gourd and its very fine patina and condition.
