Old Toledo Damascene cigarette case

Old Toledo Damascene cigarette case


This is the real old Spanish damascene. The iron base is carefully carved into the desired forms and then, gold leaf is laid over and tooled into the design. Another piece that came to me with this one, is marked “TOLEDO.” This case does not have a maker’s mark but it has “15” stamped twice on the inside of the case. I found similar pieces being from Eibar, Spain. Wonderful detail and work. The case is still usable, the hinge and clasp work. It is in very good old condition with expected wear and light rust, mostly around the edges. The case measures approximately 3 1/2″ tall x 3 1/4″ wide.
