The top hinged cover of the snuff box is decorated with symmetric floral ornament and medallions. The lateral surface along the entire perimeter is filled with very thinly executed four miniatures with scenes of hunting and animals, alternating with four floral ornamental miniatures.Hunting scenes which depict a lion torturing a bleeding bull, a horse, a tiger bent over a deer and a hunted down buffalo. Due to the lack of a makers mark it is probable that the box was made as a gift for a wealthy man.
