Here is an exceptional antique (mid-1800s) French case made to hold about 6 cigars. It is a beautiful semi-translucent boiled horn, I think, (an innovation used to mimic very fine blond tortoise shell), and is inlaid with 18k gold (tested) and sterling silver in a typical adornment of pique work. The inner straps remain in the case, original to it, but they have stretched out over time so will need to be replaced with elastic straps to hold cigars should you wish to use it. These cases are wonderful as cases for spectacles, also, and I know more than a few ladies who use them as a lovely evening purse, clutch. I suppose I'm one of the big collectors of these, and we have quite a selection - ask if you're interested.

Very good to excellent condition, the case is without bug bites, no chips or cracks. The pique inlays are in fine form, as well. A superb case.
