A snuff mull is a type of container that was used to hold snuff, a form of powdered tobacco that was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. The snuff mull originated in Scotland, and was often made from materials such as horn, wood, or silver. Snuff was typically carried in small boxes or bottles, but the snuff mull was designed to hold a larger quantity of the powdered tobacco. The snuff mull usually had a hinged lid and was often decorated with intricate designs or carvings. Some snuff mulls were also fitted with a small spoon or scoop for dispensing the snuff. In Scottish tradition, the snuff mull was often passed around as a way of sharing snuff with friends and guests. It was considered a sign of hospitality to offer guests a pinch of snuff from the mull.
