Avo Uvezian is well-known as a jazz musician, and many of his cigar boxes reflect his musical heritage. This one, called 88s, is designed as a piano keyboard. When closed, its gleaming black piano finish resembles the closed cover of a keyboard. Open, a translucent printed paper originally covered the cigars and looked like the black and white keys of a piano.
I have retained the paper covering and added an all white pen tray for fourteen pens. When you open the box, the covering still gives the keyboard effect and with it lifted aside, your pens are revealed.
The bottom of the box is covered with felt for so that the box doesn’t slide around easily and does not mar your surfaces. The box is 15 1/2 inches wide.
It is difficult to photograph this glossy surface, so the pictures of the box closed do not accurately portray the nearly perfect gleaming black finish.
