19th Century Russian Hand Beaded Cigar Case

Circa 1898. Rare Russian, double sided, folding, cigar case. This unusual artifact of late 19th Russian life features two, hand beaded panels, one on each side, done meticulously in very tiny beads, set into a tooled leather case. The tooling on the case is also very fine with remnants of the original gilding. The interior of the case is lined in tin foil and there is a compartment for holding three small cigars on each side of the case. It is in amazingly good condition, especially considering it's fragile nature, with no rips or repairs, only minor loss to the beads and still completely functional. All original, unmarked. 1 1/2" tall x 5 1/4" wide x 2" deep. Price $200
