Description

Antique Cigar Box - Infantes Cigarros Clear Havana

"When box makers and collectors refer to a “Nailed Wood with Hardware” (abbreviated NWH) they mean a standard nailed wood box, but instead of being edged and trimmed with paper labels, it is left plain wood. Instead of a muslin hinge, two brass hinges are used. Almost all NWH boxes use the same type hinge. About 25% of the NWH boxes have clasps (many varieties) and are said to have “full hardware” (abbreviated NWHC). NWH boxes were used plain or could be ordered sanded and varnished.

Ad copy on NWH boxes is normally printed directly on the box (POB) one piece of wood at a time by hand-fed steam driven presses. Black is the most common ink, with gold the next most often seen. Red is third, with everything else a distant fourth.

Box makers often integrated die cuts into the designs of NWH boxes. You will find NWH boxes with Standard inner labels, but that's not typical. Box Liners are often blue, pink, or gray paper instead of the more typical cream. NWH boxes were most popular 1885 to 1910, but are not uncommon later. Later ones are inevitably very plain. NWH's remained around until the 1930's (and can be ordered today)."

Era: Art Nouveau

Dimensions: 3.5" length, 6.5" width, 2" height

Condition: Excellent - wear consistent with age and use

    This was in terrible condition. It was listed as excellent condition, wear consistent with age. However, it was false advertising. It should have said "fair condition." It had the gold worn off. I purchased it to go with another matching cut and it pales in comparison with the other one. Very disappointed.

    Thank you for your feedback. Upon review and consideration, we stand behind our evaluation of this original antique item made in Germany between the year 1900 and 1909. The items used for comparison may not have received an authentic professional appraisal and could be a reproduction. The item sold via our Etsy shop was evaluated by a professional appraiser and is over 100 years old. There were no chips or cracks located on the tea cup or saucer. The condition is rated as excellent and the wear found on the item is consistent with use and age. Clear pictures were included in our advertisement to show the true condition of the antique tea cup and saucer. We would like to thank you again for your purchase and hope that we can exceed your expectations as a satisfied customer in the future.
    Best regards, Kurt Costello
