Antique English Tiger Oak Pipe Smoke Cabinet Game Card Box Humidor 1894 Jewelry
Antique English Tiger Oak Pipe Smoke Cabinet Game Box Humidor 1894
~Direct from England~
~From our most recent buying trip, we have an ENTIRE COLLECTION of antique English “gentleman’s cabinets”!! Many have dated, engraved presentation plaques, and ALL of them are fabulous!~
~Typically these boxes were used for storing pipes, tobacco, and game cards for men. Today, our customers use them as conversation pieces, decorative items, and YES, as jewelry boxes!!~
~THIS BOX has a British registry stamp in the wood above the drawers,
“Rd No. 236189” as best we can tell.
That would reflect a date the cabinet was made in 1894.
~ Front cabinet has a large glass door that opens to reveal a large fitted interior with 3 drawers below the open area with three round felt pads that are areas for tobacco jars~
drawers have original ornate brass pulls~
~Scalloped bar at the top has SEVEN pipe holders~
~Key included but lock doesn’t seem to work properly~
17”height x 11.5” x 8.25”;

Key is included but old lock isn’t working properly. NOTE the little brass escutcheon around the keyhole is missing so the key wiggles around in the keyhole. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
