Here’s a box I’ve not seen before, and not too likely to see again. It’s a round double decker box from Foundry Cigars. The three parts of the box nest together with the outside wood strips matching from bottom to top. The lid features a “steampunk” style image.
PLEASE NOTE: This box can only hold pens up to 5 3/16 inches long. Please measure the pens that you would consider placing in this box to be certain that they will fit.
I’ve repurposed it to hold twelve pens, six in each of its two levels, each pen up to 5 3/16 inches long. That is not long enough for longer pens, but it will handle many other pens. For example, in the pictures are a variety of Esterbrook J, SJ, and LJ pens and several different models of Sheaffer Balance, Military Balance, and Triumph Sentinel pens.
I have lined the former cigar compartments with red felt and fitted red velvety flocked pen trays to keep each pen securely in its place. I’ve even lined the inside of the lid with matching red felt so that a pen can’t touch wood in any direction.
The box measures 7 3/4 inches in diameter and 2 3/4 inches tall.
If you have the right pens, then this will make a very interesting desktop pen box for you.
The Round Twelve Pen Box is priced at $50 plus shipping. If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote.
I ship via USPS Priority Mail inside the US and via USPS International First Class Package outside the US.

This is just the thing for your man cave or billiard room, a lamp made from repurposed cigar boxes. In this case, two Oliva boxes and a Java Maduro form the base and it is topped with a drum style black shade.
The base of the lamp is 7″ by 10″ and it stands 23″ tall to the top of the shade.
The socket is a 3-way, so you can choose to use a 3-way bulb or a standard bulb, whatever you prefer. The cord is six feet long, ending in a standard polarized plug.
I can ship this lamp within the USA only. It is bulky, but not very heavy, so shipping cost within the USA should not be too high.
An option for the buyer: Since the lampshade is both bulky and fragile, I am quite willing to sell the lamp without a shade and let you provide your own shade. I will reduce the price by $15 if you choose this option.
The Oliva/Java Cigar Box Lamp is priced at $75 plus shipping ($60 plus shipping without the shade). If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote. Be sure to include your location or ZIP code.
Here’s a gleaming white Romeo y Julieta “Toro” cigar box transformed into a stunning fountain pen box. With its gloss white finish and gold script logo, the box is certainly eye-catching. Inside, I’ve lined it with bright red suede cloth and fitted it with individual cradles for nine pens, each up to 6 inches long.
Here you see it with some of the colorful pens in my Artcraft pen collection (not included).
The box measures 9 1/2 inches by 6 3/4 inches by 2 inches. Self-stopping hinges hold the lid open at an attractive angle. The bottom is covered with soft velvety black material for a non-marring finish.
The Romeo y Julieta Toro is priced at $45 plus shipping. If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote. Please be sure to include your location or ZIP code.

Full of pens
Here’s a matched pair of Perdomo Lot 23 boxes – Toro and Gordito – that are just the combination for pens and ink. The photos show them exactly as I received them, which is unfinished wood on the inside. I will stain the inside to closely match the exterior as shown in a picture below of one I did some time ago.
The Perdomo Lot 23 Toro measures 9 1/4″ by 7 1/2″ by 2″ and will hold 9-10 pens up to six inches long. The Gordito measures 8 1/2″ by 6″ by 3″ outside and 7 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ by 3″ inside. It is not quite deep enough for Noodler’s bottles, but will hold most any others.
The pair will look quite nice on your desk, holding pens and ink at the ready. I even noticed that they stack very well, and my usual 2mm foam on the bottoms will keep them from slipping or marring a surface.
You will have your choice of interior lining color.
two such pairs available, one is the color shown in the photos and the other is a lighter blonde color. Picture of the second set added to gallery below 8/24/14.
NOTE: I only have the blonde pair shown in the last picture below available at this time.
The Perdomo Pair is offered at $55 depending on your interior choices, plus actual shipping cost. If you are interested, please click here to email me and include your location so that I can provide a shipping cost quote.
The Perdomo Reserve Petit Corona finished in gloss black with silver logo imprint. It is quite small, measuring 7 1/2″ wide by 5 1/4″ front to back by 1 1/4″ deep.
