This wonderful 6"x5"x6" CAO Criollo cigar box is probably not very old. I'm guessing 90's-2000's? because the website caocigars.com is burned on the bottom :-)
Has 4 pull-out drawers an d map highlighting the connection between Nicaragua and Cuba. A recent gift from my sister who is from Virginia, US -ha ha- well known tobacco state! We get together every year and the theme of her gift to us 3 sisters was "little treasures in cigar boxes", beautiful handmade notecards, lavendar, beach shells and fossils that we collected along the James River at the Chippokes working plantation . (FYI, this spot of the tidal James River often reveals fossil shark teeth, which can be collected, but we didn't find any.) A quick ferry ride to Jamestown and Colonial Willamsburg. I love this and one of the drawers works for my 1960's tin litho butterflies.
Great time with my sisters and loved the cigar box theme! Thanks all for looking and comments.
