A superb Tramp Art trinket box,[
Scratch made from old cigar boxes circa 1910-20 unusually having the highly decorative cigar box label it was made from affixed on the inside of the lid: “Fabrica De Tabacos” of Havana, Cuba, confirming the brand of the Moro Cigar Company which were imported to the USA by A.C.Henschel & Co. The ship in the branding is possibly the Morro Castle flying the American ensign. The box therefore is possibly of USA origin.
It is charmingly painted with a green tint and measures: 11inches long by 8inches.5inches high. Weighs 585 grammes.
