Hello All, has anyone seen or have any documentation for a casket shaped snuff box (wooden)? Ive found some for the early 19th century but was looking for 18th century examples, preferably 1770s. I like the idea of the casket shaped one. How about any other containers? Im use dip (kodiak) and I know it was in use in the colonies but wanted something different than the plain round tin I use now. My persona is a 1770s era tidewater Va tobacco farmer and longhunter in the off season so the jewelled/precious metal examples are a no go. Thats why id like to make a plain wooden one. thanks...Eric

I cant help you on the snuff box question but do you happen to have any doc. for the dip or really for chewing tobacco? I'm interested since I prefer chew over a pipe.

I cant remember where I read it but a traveling Englishmen said of the colonials something like "Their always chewing and spitting like a cow and its cud". Ill have to look it up....Eric
