Trompe-l'œil Bronze Cigar Box

hover over image to zoom

A hinged bronze box deceptively fashioned to appear as a wooden cigar box, all faces with the appearance of grained cedar wood; the black lettering of the labels produced with enamel. The interior lined with cedar wood. Made circa 1880.

8.75 in x 5.25 in x 4 in

This box is very much in the same idiom as Russian trompe-l'œil silver from the last quarter of the 19th century.
