The Multi-use Snuff Box


A  Piguet & Meylan Combination Music Box, Clock and Snuff box, in the shape of a Butterfly, created around 1820. It was made for the Chinese Market.

In 1811, Piguet & Meylan was founded in Geneva. In 1828, the two associates separated. During that time, Piguet & Meylan was one of the largest companies in the city. They made exquisite timepieces for ladies and gentlemen. The Butterfly snuff boxes are my favourites in their range.
