Regular price $8,000.00
Extraordinarily beautiful and extremely rare, this stunning piece is a solid 18k yellow gold cigarette box holder with an accompanying black leather sleeve. The case features a lattice design with engraved patterns and scattered previous gemstones. The rubies, sapphires and emeralds are all carved into organic shapes and held with individual prongs. One one side, the sapphire-capped lever moves down to open one side of the top to release cigarettes. It slides back up to close that flap. At the base, the case hinges open for a box to be inserted. The inside of the case is engraved with "Made in France Especially for Neiman Marcus 18k". There are small dents in one corner of the top and a slight different in color between the two flaps. The hinges work properly and the piece fits snuggly into the leather case. The solid 18k box weighs 111g. It measures 3 1/2" in height, 2 1/4" across in width and 1" in depth.
