NO LONGER BEING MADE. I was informed that the manufacturer stopped making the Mooch box in 2011.

Is there a mooch in your life? If so, this Berger Argenti Mooch upcycled cedar wood cigar box may be an interesting and possibly humorous gift. The top of this box has the Berger Argenti Mooch label. The two sides of this box have the word "mooch" etched in the wood.

There are holes on the front, back, sides and top of this box. I wonder what these holes represent for the mooch. Also, the name "Schnoor" is on the front of the box. One of the definitions for the word schnoor is supposed to mean "to obtain by wheedling". In other words - mooching.

The cedar wood cigar box is opened on the top by a sliding lid which is very slippery. Imagine what humorous stories you can create to go with this box, holes, and slippery lid!

The outside measurements of this cedar wood cigar box are 5 1/4 inches (front) by 5 3/4 inches (side) . Height is 4 1/4 inches. The inside storage area measurements are:4 3/4 inches by 5 1/4 inches. Depth is 4 inches.

Possible uses for this cedar Berger Argenti Mooch wood cigar box include holding special mementos, storage for small items, or a special treasure. Making this a conversation piece is another possible use.

The story which was told to me was that the Mooch cigars and boxes were made for those people who were always asking for a cigar. The name on the boxes were to represent mooches. The three boxes I have seen (and currently have) are the Minnie Mooch, the Schnoor, and the Windbag.

The inside and outside of the cedar wood cigar box was sealed with 8 layers of clear coat to protect the wood. The inside bottom of the storage area was lined with a dark green felt. Also, the outside bottom of the cedar wood cigar box was covered by felt to be a soft buffer for any furniture it is placed on.

I choose boxes in good condition, but you may find some small imperfections.

The photo does not show actual size. Please refer to the description for size details which are approximate and may vary slightly.
