A young woman cavorts with her lover in the polychrome scene that adorns the cover of this German snuff box. Crafted of papier maché, the piece was made by the popular Stobwasser Factory in Braunschweig. Founded in 1763, the factory specialized in lacquerware luxury goods, which were in constant high demand by the Brunswick court.
