Fine Quality Civil War Period Cigar and Pipe Case
Fine Quality Civil War Period Cigar and Pipe Case – We have had several, Civil War, period cigar cases before, but this case is the highest quality such case we have encountered; not only is there space, within the case, for three cigars, but there is also a compartment for a pipe, lucifers (matches), a lucifer striking pad and a pouch for pipe tobacco. The case’s exterior is constructed of a fine, pebble-grain, brown leather; the interior is composed of an equally fine, red, Moroccan leather. The small, pipe tobacco pouch is made of red silk, with a drawstring for closure. The case is framed in a light, tinned, sheet iron frame, with a closure clasp. The case and its interior remain in fine condition, with no deterioration whatsoever. This is indeed a rare and rather unusual, Civil War period personal item.
