Large Tessellated Stone Box with Brass and Malachite


Two in one. Large hinged lidded box with brass inlay and what appears to be malachite. Wood lined. Suitable for use as a humidor or jewelry box. Surprise: inside is a second smaller box, lidded, wood lined, suitable for cigarettes or cards. 3.5 inches high by 9 inches wide by 6 inches deep. Both in excellent condition. If requested we can fit the larger box with a hygrometer and moisture reservoir for your finest Cuban cigars. Most likely by Maitland-Smith but could also be by Robert Marcius for Casa Bisque as their designs were produced in the same factory in the Philippines during the 1980s where Karl Springer's designs were produced.
