Winterthur Museum Garden and Library has announced that the missing snuff box has been found.
The snuff box was found by a Winterthur staff member and was located in a place where it had never been exhibited. The museum discovered in October that the small, colonial silver snuff box with sentimental value was missing from the museum. The box has been on display for 60 years in the museum rooms with other colonial New York silver items. It was given to Winterthur by Henry Francis du Pont.
