This is the other glass topped cigar box I’ve found, and it makes a good storage and/or display case for pens. It is slightly smaller than the previous Cain Limited Edition box, holding 7 pens rather than 10.
This box measures 8 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches and holds pens up to six inches long. One of the pens pictured is a MontBlanc 149.
When I found this box, it was unfinished bare wood. I have stained it with MinWax “Gunstock” stain, then applied three coats of MinWax polyurethane varnish, hand-rubbing each coat with 0000 steel wool for a smooth satin finish. The pen compartments are a combination of felt and microfibre suede cloth and will protect the finish of your pens quite nicely. I added rare earth magnets for secure closure. The bottom of the box is covered with 2mm foam so that it will not scratch your desk or table top.
The price of the Cain Exclusive Collection box is
$35 plus shipping SOLD. Like the larger Cain Limited Edition box, I do not expect to find another of these. Please email me with your location for a shipping quote.
