The Montecristo White Series boxes are always very well made and nicely finished. This particular one is the “Vintage Connecticut” version and features a red Connecticut tobacco barn on the lid, with that image repeated inside the lid, but with an unpainted barn.
I took my cue from the two barns, using Minwax “Gunstock” stain on the bare wood inside the box, picking up the color of the inside barn, and fitting a red velvety flocked pen tray to reflect the red barn and 100% Connecticut Shade Wrapper label.
The box has attractive quadrant (think jewelry box) type hinges and the bottom is covered with a velvety pad. It measures 8 3/4 inches wide, 7 inches front to back, and 1 3/4 inches deep.
Each of the eight pen slots is separated from the adjacent ones, so your pens touch nothing but the velvety covering. The slots accommodate pens up to six inches long.
The Montecristo “Vintage Connecticut” eight pen box is priced at $40 plus actual mailing cost. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your ZIP Code or location for a firm mailing cost quote.
I take payment by PayPal or if you prefer, I can email an invoice which you can pay with a credit card (or your PayPal balance).
I mail by USPS Priority Mail in the USA and by USPS International First Class Package outside the USA.
