Can anyone tell me about this snuff box?

I purchased this the other day, still waiting to receive it. Has anyone seen anything like it? Is is made of rubber or wood? I was hoping someone could shed light on this object, I really couldn't even determine the size of it by looking at the pictures. Thanks,

  • looks wood bro
  • Nice catch! If you can find a matching tin of snuff to fit inside you'll be styling. I like to keep my SM tins covered like that.
  • Looks great, although I agree that it is likely guta percha, it could also be Bakelite.
    No way of telling for sure till you've got it in your hands.

    I have one just like this one. I found at a flea market. I wonder what it is worth. $20 INVESTMENT.
  • Nice collectable box. They used gutta on the first Atlantic cable in the 1850's. I doubt they are worth much but really cool to have in the collection.
