Beautifully carved and very well preserved late 1800s to as late as 1915 cigar chest with lift-out tray to hold up to 40 cigars. Floral bouquet carved up top, and all-over adornments details. The original key still works the old lock. We’ve put up lots of photos from all angles, and measurements are noted on the photos. Very good to excellent condition, with a nod to an old repaired crack along one of the lines of perforated top panel of the interior cigar tray. It is strong and barely visible, but we want you to know it is there. A tip of one leaf of the bouquet cartouche is gone, as well (see images). The florals are really beautifully carved in a full relief, life-like. Lock engages and original key still attends it. We’re easy to deal with. You are very important!

The majestic size and impressive beauty of this Napoleon III era cigar tantalus is amazing. Extra large at 12.25″ x 9.5″ and 9 high when closed, it has presence. The panels look like fine carvings, similar to those that thrill us from the Black Forest hunt plaques, but they are each mould cast gutta percha plaques. All 4 plaques are without damage, are superb. The large tantalus still has original working lock with its key, and lifts up and back to reveal the slide-out trays that hold cigars for service. Not a humidor, no mechanism to put moisture in the air, so it is a serving cabinet only. There are a few items inside the pull-out drawer, including a really nice old leather cigar case for vest, and a butter tool. There is also a card with info about the item being given as a prize at a hunt. I’m sure it’s from the Napoleon III era, c. 1850-70s, so perhaps it was a gift later on, too. Elegant old thing, isn’t it. I love the’Fruits of the Hunt theme in everything – particularly this cigar chest, cabinet. Very good condition for age and type, there are a few small losses to the exterior, in form of flaked bits along the narrowly worked trim boards. You’ll look very closely to see them, however, and probably won’t see them without a very close inspection. The flaw notable is that the interior cigar shelves had both warped and also split and been restored. They’re shown well in our images so you can evaluate them. All are sturdy and will be serviceable in use, but they do have that old restoration and we’ve figured it into our price. Each of the 4 shelves will hold 12 cigars, for a total of 48.

Rare Antique French 12 Tantalus Style Cigar Chest or Box, Ebony & Ornate Inlay. All items and photos are the express property of Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. No reproduction without prior written consent. We’ll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our’Favorites’ customers. Magnificent & rare antique French Victorian or Napoleon III era 12 tantalus style cigar chest or box with elegant ebonized veneers, ornate inlaid lid & serpentine front and opulent veneer lined interior with five trays slotted to hold up to 65 cigars! One of three similar boxes that we now have available in the jet black ebonized veneers & ornate inlay, one of the others a marked Paul SORMANI piece. The Sormani name has a long and lauded history as as one of the finest of the fine where French ebanistes or cabinet & box makers are concerned, ranking right up there with Tahan, Vervelle & Diehl to name a few of the most well known. This piece bears no maker marking, normally found on the inside brass or bronze locking plate. If you take a look at our other that is marked by Sormani, you’ll see they are so similar that one could just assume they’re from the same or equally renowned maker. There are two small spots of veneer chipping visible in the pictures, right and left front corners of the lid. The chest is raised on triangular shaped ebonized wood feet and I can’t be certain if they are original. Otherwise, just as you see it with no missing or damaged’cream’ colored inlay that I can see and the interior is in pristine shape. Working lock & key, too! See pictures for all measurements.
