Dog Cigar Box

Wonderful Victorian silver plated cigar box or humidor.  It features a full figured standing dog on the top with it’s paw out.  The fancy design on the four sides have a monster face in the middle.  The top on the left side lifts up to store the cigars or tobacco and the small right side has two small knobs that can be unscrewed.  The top lifts off this side to allow for a moist sponge to be inserted to keep the tobacco fresh.  It is signed “Derby Silver Co. Quadruple plate” on the bottom and has a patent date of Sept.  1887 (see photo).  A fabulous gift for a gourmet cigar smoker!
