SOLD: CAO Criollo four drawer box

CAO packages its cigars in some unusual containers.  A few years ago, they produced some four-drawer boxes to fit several sizes of cigars.  These are no longer made and are highly sought after by collectors.  The smallest, the Pato, is limited to pens 5 1/4″ long, the Mancha holds up to 5 7/8″ length, and the Bomba and Conquistadore held six inch long cigars, so will accomodate most any pen.

I sand and varnish the exterior, carefully preserving the “pirate map” on the top and the CAO Criollo Story on the inside of the doors.  I also wax the drawers with antique wax so that they slide smoothly.

I replaced the original wax seal on the doors with a nice-looking “brass” latch and finished the inside of the drawers with a dark green microfibre suede cloth.  Individual dividers separate the pens.  The box will hold 20 pens and in the photos you can see a MB 149 with room to spare.

IThe Pato is priced at $125 plus shipping and I have one available.
