I have found another of the 50 year old El Producto “Queens” cigar boxes and it is ready for you to choose the lining color. These boxes will hold 25 pens stored vertically, with each pen in its individual felt-lined compartment.
The box is made of Spanish Cedar and has finger-jointed corners – very well made. I add an “egg crate” grid inside and line the internal walls and every face in the grid with felt to protect your pens. I also cover the bottom of the box with 2mm thick foam to keep it from sliding or scratching your desk or table. It measures 4 1/2 inches square and 7 inches tall.
These boxes originally are completely unfinished wood and frequently have stains and dirt accumulated over the years. I use 0000 steel wool to clean and smooth the wood while minimizing damage to the old logos. I then apply three coats of polyurethane varnish, hand rubbing each coat with 0000 steel wool for a smooth satin finish.
This box is complete except for choosing the lining color. You can have red or Hunter Green – your choice. The pictures below show this box both closed and with its angled lid slightly open, plus two previously sold boxes with red and green linings.
The El Producto Queens 25 Pen Box is priced at
$55 plus actual mailing cost. Due to an unexpected number of inquiries, I have had difficulty finding enough El Producto boxes to meet demand. If you want to be placed on a wait list, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a firm mailing cost quote.
I mail by USPS Priority Mail inside the USA and by USPS International First Class Package outside the USA.
I take payment by PayPal or if you prefer I can email you an invoice which you can pay with a credit card.
