Recently acquired an entire collection of fine early to mid-1800s cigar cases and weâll 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 smaller cheroot cigars popular in their time, and is a fine leather slip case, baffled to hold about 3-4 cigars (see final 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 bouquet of flowers. Suitable for a ladyâs spectacles or a gentleman's cigars.
Very good to excellent for age and type. Light evidence of age to the leather, most at the baffle folds, but for age, very little. The needlework panel is superb, too. Measurements noted on the photos.
