The central scene of the snuff box is inspired by a composition of Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), as well as one of the lateral subjects ("The Happy Family"). The other scenes seem to be interpretations made from other compositions. This snuffbox of very beautiful dimensions is in a state of exceptional conservation.
