A plain rectangular gray metal box with a lid that opens on a hinge once contained snuff tobacco. The inside of the box lid is lined with brown paper printed in black with a cartoon showing a spitting man being arrested while a woman and children look on entitled "Constable arresting a man for chewing Tobacco". The label on the inside bottom describes the social and health benefits of snorting tobacco as snuff rather than chewing and spitting it.
