I acquired this as a cigar caddy but, while I believe that is what it is, I could never see it in some Victorian male's study or masculine lair. So, what I have wondered is, was it a cigar caddy for use in a more feminine controlled part of the home or even in a slightly more risqué venue? I have used it to hold and display jewelry. You can hang chains from the interior spaces of the caddy basket. I have not cleaned it. The interior base is mirrored and is a replacement. Shown displaying some pieces not included with this sale but available in my shop. It is very French with the dove finials. Some of the cage bars need straightening but this is very minor. Made of brass, mirror base, 10 inches high.
