When I bought my studio (an old house that belonged to my friend & neighbor before she went into the nursing home), there were lots of old spice tins & bottles in the cabinet. I hung on to them waiting to use them. Several years later, I figured it out!
I'm pretty sure this was an old snuff tin! (Yes, this one is empty!) I topped it with a snowman I sculpted from paperclay. Measures about 3.5" tall.
