Recently acquired an entire collection of fine 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 theyâve 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 in fine condition with silver plate or pewter fittings, machined or engraved with an ornate pattern and the interior pocket panels have hand embroidered floral decoration on purple velvet set against the light blue moire silk lining. The leather is a fine quality and remains in good shape given its age. Silver finished fittings, clasp & cartouche all in great working condition. Suitable for a lady's spectacles and evening needs if you wish to use as a little evening purse (I used to use these in that way, mostly the ones in tortoise shell with pique work - stunning old things), or also perfect for a gentleman's cigars. Very good condition for age and type. Light evidence of age to the leather,but for age, very little. The clasp works fine, a bit of tarnish to the metal and the interior is in great shape, too, with a nod to the somewhat tattered silk on the right side and some splitting to the pocket side baffles. See pictures for measurements.
