Recently acquired an entire collection of fine early to mid-1800s cigar cases and we’ll list each one separately for sale. Look for them all, though. The entire collection is just fabulous! From hand embroidered ones to one favorite of mine with hand carved antler stag on front, to a splendid old shagreen case, to a host of others that would be wonderful gift ideas along with a tin of Davidoff cigars (or other) for your favorite friends who enjoy one now and then. I’ll be brief in describing each one, but they’ve come to us out of Paris and from the estate of a noted (and titled) collector who chose to remain anonymous. Wish we could disclose.
This one is a great one for the protecting the cigars as it is a rather solid outer case and not just expanding by baffles. It is a fine leather case, hinged to open and to hold about six 5” cigars (see image to show with cigars). The leather is a fine quality and remains supple. It is beautifully gold-embossed and the inset is an embroidered cross stitch panel of linen needlework canvas, a monogram only. The interior is leather and in very nice condition for age. Suitable for a lady’s spectacles and evening needs if you wish to use as a little evening purse (I used to use these in that way, mostly the ones in tortoise shell with pique work - stunning old things), or also perfect for a gentleman’s cigars.
Very good to excellent for age and type. Light evidence of age to the leather,but for age, very little. The needlework panel is superb, too. Measurements noted on the photos.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
