RUSSIAN KARELIAN BEECHWOOD PRESENTATION CIGARETTE BOX - made of Karelian Beechwood Burl - hand crafted perfection from the Romanov Era. On the lid is what appears to be a Family Crest. Hinged lid has precision crafted hidden dovetailing so that the seams disappear when closed. Side seams appear nonexistent (See both 2nd and 3rd photos). Craftsmanship and materials are simply exquisite. Notice the elegant curve of the clasp as it barely emerges from the top.
Cigarette Box was purchased with a similar Cigar Box I have listed separately by a good friend while on a visit to St. Petersburg, Russia, many years ago.
Box measures 3-3/4" wide by 3-1/2" long by 1-3/4" high.
