"Astonishing Cigar Box XIXe Ingenuous Secrets"
Here is an undoubtedly unique, long-thought and very well realized object, entirely by hand, by its inventor at the end of the 19th century. We took a long time to understand. It is a large barrel of colored wood, in yew and olive, partly inlaid, partly blackened wood. It stands on 3 feet, is closed by a beautiful lid turned in the form of a fountain that contains a housing for matches.
To open the lid, turn the hexagonal base of the fountain: an elastic system makes the 3 wooden bolts of the opening retract.
Once opened, you can distinguish, around a cylinder of tin, (humidifier), the housing for 17 cigars, size "diplomat" that one can not reach directly, avoiding to damage or steal .
To make them rise along the shelters, we must find a ring in a foot, the thrust of which will release the notch of a tube of turned boxwood, (which could contain a thermometer), This tube is pulled, which causes all the cigars to be brought together manually.
Look at the photos, it's impressive.
