Product Description

A very unusual and attractive, substantial, bronze-brass Cigar Box, decorated with the bronze figures of a rat and 2 mice examining a small rolled scroll.

It appears to be French or Austrian and dates from around the end of the 19th century. It is a surprising piece, because, if it wasn’t for the figures on the lid, it would look like a strongbox. The box walls have been roughly cast and display small flaws, making it look like the mould had cracks on its surface. The are not in any way damage to the brass, and add to the charm of the piece. The box has been partially polished, but enough of the original patina left on it. The inside of the box is lined in mahogany wood.

Size: 20.5 x 13 x 16.5 cm (8 1/8 x 5 1/8 x 6 ½ inches)
Weight: 2316 g
