Art Deco shagreen box with a lovely turquoise colour, edged in Ivory making the stylish cigarette box stand out and which makes it more robust. The interior is lined in satin cedar. One of the brass hinges is marked "London Made" and there is a gold label on the underside of the box which reads the same.

A wonderful piece of Art Deco elegance once and still can be used for cigarettes or cigars as well as a decorative desk piece.

Shagreen is a leather made from sharkskin or the skin of a Stingray. This type of Shagreen was first made popular by Jean-Claude Galluchat (d1774) a master leatherworker in the Court of Louis XV in France. It became a fashion amongst the French aristocracy and later throughout Europe. Shagreen is derived from the French word "Chagrin".
