unfortunately, my order was confirmed as lost during shipping. but the outstanding staff at Mr.Snuff, being true to their word, sent it again at no charge. with that said, it was definitely worth the wait! this snuff bottle is positively gorgeous! the photo does no justice, much more beautiful than i expected. thick walled and weighty for it's size, you have to hold it in your hand to truly understand! in the future i will be passing this down as an heirloom, as it is sure to last lifetimes.
