Antique 1889 Brazil Silver Carved Wood Cigarette Box Cigar Presentation.

 

 

Offered for sale is an exquisitely carved cigarette or cigar box dated 1889 on the top.  I am not sure of the metal, but looks like silver repousse work, no mark that I could find.  The wood is carved very elaborately with the appearance of layers but is actually solid wood, very hard, perhaps ebony or other exotic hardwood from Brazil.  It is very well made and may be some kind of presentation box. The size looks like it is for cigarettes but I know cigars are sometimes smaller and may have fit.  Condition is very good, with a few areas on the top that could be improved with some oil and polishing.  I did not attempt any cleaning.  The inside has a remnant of a paper tag or label that could be carefully removed.  Measures 5 and 1/4" by 4 and 1/2" and is 2 and 1/8" tall.  the inside is 3 and 3/4" by 3".
