This beautiful accessory with metal pique inlay, ornate monogram was once used to hold fine cigars. It is from Paris and dates from 1890-1900.

The case is of richly colored tortoiseshell in shades of caramel, amber and chocolate. The cartouche monogram is of fine brass framed by delicately hand cut detailing, which resembles lace work. The initials inside are "AD" or "DA". The outer edges of the case are of fine brass and and retain the original leather baffles.

The interior is of fine blue moire silk. There are two pockets for slim, fashionable cigars, one pocked for wooden matches and a small square for striking the match.

The case measures: 5 1/4" x 2 3/4" x 7/8" thick. It is in excellent condition, with very little wear. The interior is also in excellent condition, with little fading and almost no wear to the silk.

It would make a fine case for business cards, a wonderful desk accessory or a lovely little purse for elegant evenings out.
