    Sevres snuffbox in the shape of an egg.

    1764-1764 French Sèvres snuffbox at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "Egg-shaped boxes were very popular in the 18th century, especially in England, where they were often made of materials such as gold-mounted agates and enamelled copper. Sèvres porcelain boxes shaped as eggs however appear to be very rare. It is possible was a special commission for an English customer of the Sèvres factory."
