A spectacular 1880s to earliest 1900s hand carved Swiss Black Forest lift-top cigar cabinet, 11.5" wide and with 3 trays, holds 30 large cigars for service. Beautifully carved on all sides, florals and forest look, a monogrammed shield cartouche up top. I know you're going to ask me the initials. I'm guessing at it, as I can make it be TPC, or HB, either one. You'll have to see what you make of it.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. The chest is raised on bun feet, and there really isn't any warp, cracks, hairlines. It would have initially had 6 trays, but it looks balanced with the 3 excellent ones that remain with it. They're all carved nicely, too. One thing to note is that the actual lock mechanism is missing. The pin half of the lock plate is there, and keyhole, but the lock has been removed. Doesn't hurt the look any, as you have to go searching under the fold-back lid to see it's missing. Photos show it from all sides, and it's in very fine shape throughout. As you can see, it's in a medium light wood, and it shows off its serpentine edging and bas relief carvings very nicely. All measurements noted on the photos.
