Rare Antique Mid-1800s Paris Grand Tour Cigar Case
A very rare c. 1850 Paris Grand Tour cigar case with hand-painted eglomise views of Paris monuments.
The case is pressed brass and has 5 hand-painted monuments on ivory and under glass, including the Arc de Triomphe and others. The case opens up to its original lining and pouches, and the back is a deep blue velvet. It would have held small cigars.
It measures 6-1/4" by 2-7/8" by approx. 1/2" deep. It's in excellent condition with 8 tiny missing pin nails/pegs. This does not affect the workings of the piece. The clasp is secure, and there is very light wear.
This is a very special and collectible Grand Tour piece!
