The heart-shaped snuffbox has been made from bovine bone. The lid of the snuffbox is mounted on metal hinges. Around the body and on the lid, rivets and traces of folding/securing the bone plates to the body of the container are visible. On the lid, a modest, simplified motif of a flower has been carved, taking advantage of the rivets. Meanwhile, on the body, there are simplified acanthus leaves and a motto in German referring to the item’s purpose. On the bottom, a carved representation inspired by 17th-century German heraldry, is visible.
