"J. VEYRAT, Paris" gold embossed maker mark on the interior of the old case for this exquisite antique cigar and cheroot holder, "14 rue Ramputeau" the address of the vendor. Rue Ramputeau would be a street in the Marais, not far from the Musée National Picasso, Paris, and a fine neighborhood for centuries. At this location today you will find Terres de Cafe, a 4.5-star (customer rated) restaurant, and I'm including a photo of it just for the charm. The amber is a deep honey color, gorgeous, and trimmed with an 18k gold shield with monogram, "C L", and a thick substantial gold ring at the end. Slightly longer than 3.5", with a diameter at tip of more than .75". The interior diameter is .5", for use with smaller cigars up to .5". Amber is fossilized resin of certain species of ancient extinct trees.
Very good for age and type, it is a beauty, but you can see it has been used and cherished, and while it's been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, it does have teeth marks at the lip. With its original leather-clad case to protect it for a century or more, the case shows age, but is fully intact. Case or etui is 4" long, 1.25" widest, a little more oval than round. Please don't ask me to weigh the gold. It is acid tested at 18k. Look for our many cigar-related cases and holders, presenters and humidor, sold separately.
