Antique French Napoleon III Era c. 1850-70 Cigar Cabinet, Chest, Presentation Box, Holds 50. 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. Another elegantly crafted cigar presentation cabinet – not a humidor (no moisturizing element inside) this is the cabinet at table or desk in den, and holds up to 50 cigars. A slightly smaller version than the last several we’ve offered, this cigar cabinet is 9″ x 7 5/8″ and 8 1/2 tall when closed. Raised just a bit on lathe-turned wooden feet, accented with brass boulle cartouche and stringing, canted corners – it’s a beauty! Still has its working lock and key, too (rare). Very good to excellent condition for age and type, it is not pristine, however. As with almost all of these old ones (150 + years now), it has some signs of age. While it has all 5 original trays, and they all have their original knobs, I can see that one tray has broken and been repaired. This is a quite common occurrence, owing to the way they’re grooved for the cigars. I’ve marked it with an “x”. There is a little roughness to top left cover/top – like 3 lines on the old wood, slight age shrinkage from look of it. On opposite side of lid, from top view, you can see a spot which could use some ebony filler. The old hardwood veneers are beautiful, elegantly contrasted and the pencil edging up top, wood corner-round, rather than brass edging is just beautiful. The old braced hinge and lock are each upper-grade hardware. The anchor/brace keeps the lid from tipping too far back when opened. It’s beautiful in use. These never last long in our shop.
