Snuff box with portrait of Charles James Fox


Snuff box with portrait of Charles James Fox

Who was Charles Fox? Here's a cryptic synopsis from the gov.uk history website: "Fox was a gambling addict, womaniser, debtor, and dandy who was forgiven his failings by many because of his defence of civil liberty and his overwhelming charisma. He was Britain's first Foreign Secretary. In fact, he was Secretary of State 3 times, in 1782, 1783 and 1806, but each time he used the position more successfully to fight for a constitutionally stronger Parliament than to achieve foreign policy aims."

$ He was most noted in the USA for being a great supporter of the American Revolution, and in France for supporting the revolution there.

This snuff box is brass, and measures 3" in diameter.
