Tobacco box, Johannes Schiotling, 1776

silver (metal), h 20.1cm × d 14.7cm × w 7.6gr. More details

This tobacco box has features associated with two different styles. The curved shape and pierced lower border with rocailles (the ‘foamy’ forms) are typical of the Rococo. The vertical grooves (fluting) on the box and the lid, the laurel wreaths and the precisely rendered flowers of the finial, by contrast, are part of the Neoclassical repertory. Many objects, including furniture, were made in such a hybrid style.

On display in room 1.7-02
