Dutch copper tobacco box, with engraved scene and text



Dutch copper tobacco box, with engraved scene and text

Period: mid 18th century

Front: A scene with a maid, a lady and a gentleman, listening to a howling dog.
The scene- and text refers to the superstition that a dog who is showing up in the morning and howling at you is a  bringer of bad luck, even death.

Size: 16 x 7,5 cm



Text: (left)        Och, och waer of de doot verschuijlt, daer heeft een hont soo naer gehuijlt
       (right)        Wel wat sou dat, onnosele sloof, wat gront heeft doch is bijgeloof


Bottom: A rhyme about using tobacco

               Toebak dat edel kruijt,
               Dat wijn en bier doet smake,
               men rookse met de mont
               men trekse met de kaaken

A name is slightly visible on the inside of the box, most likely from a previous owner:
