dog shaped box, sweden

The National Museum of Sweden does not identify what this small, enameled copper box held back in its day.  I imagine it was snuff. (If you'd like to go look at the item's record page, it's here.)  Have you ever asked yourself what was so attractive about snuff?  Here's an article describing what it's like.
