With its only flaw being a slightly upward warp the the thick panel of shell that comprises the back of this case, we rather think its next owner might well put this one to use. The side baffles that expand the case to hold cigars on each side, (or your spectacles and credit cards, cash for the evening, which is how we use these today), are in fine condition and are supple and without any splits. The interior is, likewise, in very fine condition and awaits the pleasure of use, however you choose to do so. A shield cartouche that is surrounded by inlaid flowers of mother of pearl, is open for your addition of your own monogram should you so choose. A fine case!

Very good condition for age and type, just as noted above.

IMPORTANT NOTE regarding antique tortoise shell or ivory: We are great supporters of protection for endangered species in our modern world. We never buy or sell anything 100 years or newer; we donate to anti-poaching organizations; we don't hunt; we conserve in ways that impact global warming (we're totally solar at home), knowing those measures also protect the animals in the wild today. We also recognize the vast cultural history we preserve with our care and reverence for these antique objects, and agree with CITES that objects over 100 years of age have nothing whatsoever to do with species depletion in our current world. 

Our offering exceeds the age limitation of "more than 100 years of age", and is well within the exemption for CITES regulation. If imported, met the CITES regulation. This item will be handled and shipped from our Utah business, and is not available for shipment internationally, nor within the USA to California, NY, Nevada, Hawaii, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington if it contains ivory, sorry. Please see our small print for more details.
