Description: JACOBITE INTEREST: METAL MOUNTED HORN SNUFF MULL
LATE 18TH/ EARLY 19TH CENTURY
with silvered metal mounts, the hinged cover with the date 1745 and inscribed beneath the collar 'JOHN MORISON' with a coat-of-arms and the motto 'Uno Ictu'
11cm long

Notes: Note: There was a John Morison of Banffshire listed as captured at the Battle of Culloden according the "Prisoners of the '45". What became of him is unknown as no record of his trial or release has been found. It is possible that this snuff mull was engraved with the date 1745 at a later time to commemorate his involvement in the Jacobite uprising. Another potential candidate is John Morison of Bognie whose family had strong Jacobite ties
