LIga Privada has generated a series of interesting cigar boxes recently, including a large one named the “Feral Flying Pig.” When I saw this small sampler box that carries similar graphics and overall design, I grabbed it up, knowing that it was well made and would make an interesting desktop pen box.
I chose to retain as much of the original look as possible, so the exterior still carries the distinctive labels. I sanded rough edges and applied hand-rubbed varnish to the bare wood of the exterior. The bottom, as with almost all of my boxes, has a 2mm foam pad added to prevent sliding and marring of surfaces.
Inside, I retained the distinctive label on the lid and varnished all the surfaces. I then lined the bottom half of the box with faux leather microsuede and fitted it with four individual pen compartments lined with the same material.
The box will comfortably hold four large diameter pens (that’s a MontBlanc 149 on the left in the pictures and a Shrade Tactical Pen on the right) up to 7 inches long.
Outside, the box measures 5 inches by 7 3/4 inches by 1 3/8 inches – a small footprint for your desk.
The Liga Privada Sampler Four Pen Desktop Box is priced at $40 plus shipping. If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote. Be sure to include your location or ZIP code.
I ship via USPS Priority Mail inside the US and USPS International First Class Mail outside.
