Object Description

This is a beautiful Victorian French tortoiseshell cigar case in excellent original condition.

It measures 5 1/2″ (14 cms) x just under 3″ (7.5 cms) wide and has stunning silver and gold pique work going from left to right at the top and bottom, plus a large swag of pique near to the top with 2 gold panels that are blank and therefore could be engraved.

Inside takes cigars or smoking paraphernalia on both sides and is lined in burgundy silk with a shaped section to the left having a strike plate on it for matches.The edging is in brass and it opens with a sprung catch which works perfectly and all round this is a most attractive cigar case.

There has been no damage at all and I can find no marks or scratches or other defects. The tortoiseshell shines brightly and the silver and gold pique is just stunning.
