This listing is for one vintage antique Havana Ribbon Perfectos handmade wooden cigar box in good pre-owned original condition. The top lid is slightly warped and does not close tightly. The top lid label is missing. The price has been adjusted accordingly due to these misfortunes. Collecting decorated and novelty cigar boxes is an increasingly popular hobby in both Europe and North America. Trimmed nailed wood boxes with interesting labels, novelty boxes in unusual shapes and printed tin boxes are the most popular. Salesmen’s samples, vanity labels, and various themes such as SPORTS, medicine, politics or pretty girls are frequently objects of collector’s attention. The main considerations to purchasing an antique cigar box is the condition of the inner label and the structural integrity of the entire box – both of which are extremely nice for this particular cigar box. Other factors to evaluate cigar boxes are considering the actual age, label image, era, and rarity. This item comes from a long time collector who is currently liquidating some personal items from inventory in which they have owned for several years. This particular collector has spent a lifetime collecting diverse items such as cast metal banks, cigar boxes, and other things of historic interest, etc, and has always stored such items in a curio-type display cabinet free from dust, sunlight or other elements. Detailed Condition and Description. This is a standard-sized cigar box for 50 cigars, measuring approximately 9 by 5 1/4 by 2 1/4 inches. The box structure is complete and intact. The inner walls read. “Havana Ribbon, ” Philada. The top of the lid and the sides (including the top edges and corners) are trimmed with blue and white decorative paper. The inner lid label has terrific display quality with the “Havana Ribbon” name and logos. Title and design owned by Bayuk Bros. It has burnt-in imprinting directly on exposed wood that reads “Havana Ribbon Perfectos” on the front side wall. The outside side walls once again pictures the “Havana Ribbon” name and logos. I believe this originally was pictured on both side walls, but one side is missing this information. The lid of the box is slightly warped from age and does not close tightly. Small stains on the bottom of box. This box is original and authentic and has not been cleaned or altered in any way. Good old collectible, retro, vintage and often times rare cigar boxes would be a special touch to anyone’s collection of “oldie but goodie” items! We guarantee to pack this item with extreme care for safe arrival to your doorstep. There is a stamping on the bottom of this box that reads. Factory No 630 1st District Pa and the number 50. A label that reads. Notice – The manufacturers of the Cigars herein contained have complied with all the requirements of Law – Every person is cautioned not to use either this box for cigars again or the stamp there as again not to remove the contents of this bar without destroying said stamp under the penalties provided by Law in such cases. The dimensions of this cigar box are. 2.1/4 inches tall. This size of cigar box originally held 50 cigars. Serious collectors pay high prices for historic, unique and significant items in top condition. Very old and rare pieces are often fought over in the market place. For two centuries, every time someone heard the phrase “cigar box” a vision of a wood rectangle covered with paper labels popped into their head. It should, because hundreds of millions of boxes like that have been made. They’re descriptively called “nailed wood boxes” by the people who make them. They were manufactured in an almost endless variety of shapes and sizes from barely over one inch to more than two feet wide. Nailed Wood boxes are usually made from six pieces of wood: a top, a bottom, a front and back, and two end pieces nailed with fourteen nails, four in each end and six in the bottom. The lid is hinged by a strip of muslin glued to the top and back. The hinge and joints where pieces of wood meet are usually covered with a strip of paper called edging. Nailed wood boxes have changed only once in nearly 200 years. Until the 1880’s lids rested on all four sides of a box, which allowed lids of the 1870’s to twist off, a fact lamented by today’s collectors. Box men redesigned lids so that they rested on the front and back, but were inset between the two ends, thus preventing twist. The two types of lid are today called’overall lids” and “inset lids. When a customer tells a box maker he wants a “trimmed box” he is saying shorthand for. The entire box is to be edged with inch wide paper strips, the inside of the lid has a paper label, the sides and bottom are lined with paper, and various tags, flaps, banners and price stickers are attached as needed. The outside top of the lid is to be branded or labeled, the front may be imprinted with the name given that size and shape of cigar, and all proper legal notices are attached or printed on the box. You can see why people shortened it to trimmed. Most trim was pasted on by the box maker. The cigar factory also added trim to boxes, putting on the outer label, color mark (on one end), nail tag, and revenue stamp. Sizes, shapes, colors and placement of trim has changed only slightly over time. Trim is the name given by the box industry to all the labels and markings applied in one way or another to a cigar box. Some trim is applied by the box maker and other trim is pasted or stamped by the cigar factory after the box is packed full of cigars. A few pieces of trim may be applied by either. Most trim is optional. Some is required by law. The major lithographers offered catalogs of stock images. More than 250,000 images have been reported, covering every possible theme: pretty girls, famous men, celebrities, animals, local scenes and events… If it could be imagined and drawn, it became a cigar label. The Nailed Wood box dominated the cigar industry until rising costs after WWII encouraged the use of cardboard boxes. The classic form of cigar packaging, made from a variety of woods such as Cuban and Honduran mahogany, redwood, basswood, and more than twenty other rare and common woods. Cigar companies, box makers and collectors classify wooden cigar boxes as. Nailed wood with hardware. Ovelties or custom work. Boxes have been made of dozens of different woods, tin, aluminum, brass, silver plate, glass, plastic, cardboard, and other materials. Boxes are normally made to hold 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 or 250 cigars, though a few other sizes are permitted. They are often richly decorated. Nineteenth century cigar factories, large and small, frequently assembled their own boxes, often the task of children in a family enterprise. There are two kinds of cigar boxes: wood and everything else. Between 1800 and 1960 around 80% of all cigar boxes were made of wood. That amounts to somewhere around 8,000,000,000 (a reasonable estimate) wooden cigar boxes. Another 2,000,000,000 cigar “boxes” were made of cardboard, tin, glass, plastic, tin foil, aluminum, pewter, brass, china, ceramics, silverplate and palm leaves. It wasn’t until the Revenue Act of 1864 that all cigars were required to be packed in boxes, and in 1865, President Lincoln enacted a law that required they be packed in bundles of 25, 50, 100, or 250. Shortly thereafter, cigars became cheaper and more available, and many of the boxes that they came in are considered collectible items in today’s market. Perfect as a humidor, gun box, mailbox or anything else you can think of. Most of all, a great conversation piece as it proudly displays in your collection. Almost everybody had their treasures or some of their personal items stashed away in an old cigar box. And you have to admit, seeing an old cigar box always causes a rush of nostalgic memories. The forced close relationships of people from the past, and the limited space for the families living together- often in one room, necessitated proper identification of each personal item, so many people used cigar boxes to store their small belongings of shaving gear, toiletries and many times precious jewelry.

Extremely rare, and virtually impossible to find. All Original and Authentic. Don’t let this be the one that got away. NOTE: This is the last one of these I have. When it’s gone – it’s gone! Pp12 yt34 cr13 up [152304]. This listing is for one vintage antique Oder Oma handmade wooden cigar box in super nice original condition. Collecting decorated and novelty cigar boxes is an increasingly popular hobby in both Europe and North America. Trimmed nailed wood boxes with interesting labels, novelty boxes in unusual shapes and printed tin boxes are the most popular. Salesmen’s samples, vanity labels, and various themes such as SPORTS, medicine, politics or pretty girls are frequently objects of collector’s attention. The main considerations to purchasing an antique cigar box is the condition of the inner label and the structural integrity of the entire box – both of which are extremely nice for this particular cigar box. Other factors to evaluate cigar boxes are considering the actual age, label image, era, and rarity. This item comes from a long time collector who is currently liquidating some personal items from inventory in which they have owned for several years. This particular collector has spent a lifetime collecting diverse items such as cast metal banks, cigar boxes, and other things of historic interest, etc, and has always stored such items in a curio-type display cabinet free from dust, sunlight or other elements. The inside of this cigar box is neatly lined with white paper and has a few dirty areas throughout. The outside edges and corners are also lined with blue and white decorative paper that reads Hand Made. The outside box corners show a little wear, but overall condition is super nice considering its age. The lid of the box fits nicely and securely shuts without any hang-ups. This box is original and authentic and has not been cleaned or altered in any way. Good old collectible, retro, vintage and often times rare cigar boxes would be a special touch to anyone’s collection of “oldie but goodie” items! There is a stamping on the bottom of this box that reads. Notice – The manufacturers of the Cigars herein contained have complied with all the requirements of Law – Ever person is cautioned not to use either this box for cigars again or the stamp there as again not to remove the contents of this bar without destroying said stamp under the penalties provided by Law in such cases. There is also a top portion of a tag of the bottom of the box that was removed that reads. Edwards is written in pencil on the left top lid area, I suppose giving the box a bit more personal character. The dimensions of this cigar box are. This size of cigar box normally would hold 50 cigars. Serious collectors pay high prices for historic, unique and significant items in top condition. Very old and rare pieces are often fought over in the market place. For two centuries, every time someone heard the phrase “cigar box” a vision of a wood rectangle covered with paper labels popped into their head. It should, because hundreds of millions of boxes like that have been made. They’re descriptively called “nailed wood boxes” by the people who make them. They were manufactured in an almost endless variety of shapes and sizes from barely over one inch to more than two feet wide. Nailed Wood boxes are usually made from six pieces of wood: a top, a bottom, a front and back, and two end pieces nailed with fourteen nails, four in each end and six in the bottom. The lid is hinged by a strip of muslin glued to the top and back. The hinge and joints where pieces of wood meet are usually covered with a strip of paper called edging. Nailed wood boxes have changed only once in nearly 200 years. Until the 1880’s lids rested on all four sides of a box, which allowed lids of the 1870’s to twist off, a fact lamented by today’s collectors. Box men redesigned lids so that they rested on the front and back, but were inset between the two ends, thus preventing twist. The two types of lid are today called’overall lids” and “inset lids. When a customer tells a box maker he wants a “trimmed box” he is saying shorthand for. The entire box is to be edged with inch wide paper strips, the inside of the lid has a paper label, the sides and bottom are lined with paper, and various tags, flaps, banners and price stickers are attached as needed. The outside top of the lid is to be branded or labeled, the front may be imprinted with the name given that size and shape of cigar, and all proper legal notices are attached or printed on the box. You can see why people shortened it to trimmed. Most trim was pasted on by the box maker. The cigar factory also added trim to boxes, putting on the outer label, color mark (on one end), nail tag, and revenue stamp. Sizes, shapes, colors and placement of trim has changed only slightly over time. Trim is the name given by the box industry to all the labels and markings applied in one way or another to a cigar box. Some trim is applied by the box maker and other trim is pasted or stamped by the cigar factory after the box is packed full of cigars. A few pieces of trim may be applied by either. Most trim is optional. Some is required by law. The major lithographers offered catalogs of stock images. More than 250,000 images have been reported, covering every possible theme: pretty girls, famous men, celebrities, animals, local scenes and events… If it could be imagined and drawn, it became a cigar label. The Nailed Wood box dominated the cigar industry until rising costs after WWII encouraged the use of cardboard boxes. The classic form of cigar packaging, made from a variety of woods such as Cuban and Honduran mahogany, redwood, basswood, and more than twenty other rare and common woods. Cigar companies, box makers and collectors classify wooden cigar boxes as. Nailed wood with hardware. Ovelties or custom work. Boxes have been made of dozens of different woods, tin, aluminum, brass, silver plate, glass, plastic, cardboard, and other materials. Boxes are normally made to hold 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 or 250 cigars, though a few other sizes are permitted. They are often richly decorated. Nineteenth century cigar factories, large and small, frequently assembled their own boxes, often the task of children in a family enterprise. There are two kinds of cigar boxes: wood and everything else. Between 1800 and 1960 around 80% of all cigar boxes were made of wood. That amounts to somewhere around 8,000,000,000 (a reasonable estimate) wooden cigar boxes. Another 2,000,000,000 cigar “boxes” were made of cardboard, tin, glass, plastic, tin foil, aluminum, pewter, brass, china, ceramics, silverplate and palm leaves. It wasn’t until the Revenue Act of 1864 that all cigars were required to be packed in boxes, and in 1865, President Lincoln enacted a law that required they be packed in bundles of 25, 50, 100, or 250. Shortly thereafter, cigars became cheaper and more available, and many of the boxes that they came in are considered collectible items in today’s market. Perfect as a humidor, gun box, mailbox or anything else you can think of. Most of all, a great conversation piece as it proudly displays in your collection. Almost everybody had their treasures or some of their personal items stashed away in an old cigar box. And you have to admit, seeing an old cigar box always causes a rush of nostalgic memories.

Don’t let this be the one that got away. NOTE: This is the last one of these I have. When it’s gone – it’s gone! Pp12 yt34 cr13 up [151304]. This listing is for one vintage antique El Barco handmade wooden 50 count cigar box in pre-owned condition. I believe this cigar box is dated from the era or 1901 – 1903. This item comes from a long time collector who is currently liquidating some personal items from inventory in which they have owned for several years. This particular collector has spent a lifetime collecting diverse items such as cast metal banks, cigar boxes, and other things of historic interest, etc, and has always stored such items in a curio-type display cabinet free from dust, sunlight or other elements. The muslin binding on the lid is broken so the lid no longer is attached to the box, but it still fits nicely for a good closure. I have adjusted the price according due to this flaw. This cigar box has not attempted to be cleaned in any way (not even dusted out) – some minor tearing on the outer paper of the box and in places is very brittle. Detailed Condition and Description. This is a standard-sized cigar box for 50 cigars, measuring approximately 8 1/4 by 5.5 by 2.5 inches. The box structure is complete, but the muslin binding is broken on the back of the lid. Original paper inner lining paper is still in place. The inside of this cigar box was lined with white paper and has become discolored with age. The top of the lid and the sides (including the top edges and corners) are trimmed with green and white decorative paper with the company name “Vuella Abajo” printed throughout. The inner lid label has terrific display vintage quality with “Albright’s El Barco” log name, picture of three men on a boat. One outside side walls pictures the same as the inside lid. I believe this originally was pictured on both side walls, but one side is missing the photo. The outside box corners show some wear and is missing the paper trim in places, but overall condition is good considering its age. (Please view all photos in this listing for an accurate view). The muslin binding is broken on the lid. This box is original and authentic and has not been cleaned or altered in any way. Good old collectible, retro, vintage and often times rare cigar boxes would be a special touch to anyone’s collection of “oldie but goodie” items!
