A fantastic 19th century amboyna wood humidor/cigar box. The lid has a cross-banded kingwood and ebony strung border, it is inlaid with brass and mother of pearl and the central brass cartouche is vacant and free of initials/monograms etc. The lid opens and the front falls down to reveal 4 cigar trays that slide out, each tray will hold 12 cigars. The humidor is complete with working lock and key.
Complete with working lock and key.
Interesting Fact: Amboyna is among the most expensive and sought after of all the burls. Amboyna is the name of a burl wood from any of the Pterocarpus species. The name is derived from Ambon Island (Indonesia) where much of the figured wood is believed to have been initially exported.
