Scottish Tartans World Register: MacLeod 
MacLeod Snuffbox Portrait Tartan  WR1268

In a portrait of the 24th chief, John Norman, painted posthumously (perhaps by Julius Jacobson, born 1811) in 1835, John Norman is shown in the costume worn for the visit of George IV to Edinburgh in 1822. The snuff-box may be evidence that the Vestiarium 'loud' design, which is very similar to that of the snuff box, had particular significance for John Norman or his wife, Ann Stephenson. (Ruairidh MacLeod, Tartans of Clan MacLeod, 1990.)
The source of tartan 1268 was: Dunvegan Castle.
