Antique TOBACCO CIGAR BOX Hand Painted Tobacciana Rare SALVADOR CORONA

Antique hand-painted cigar box from Mexico, featuring pictures of early Southwest Colonial life by SALVADOR CORONA

We are pleased to present this hand-painted Salvador Corona cigar box. It features intricate representations of life in the Southwest in the 19th century and is suitable for many sizes of cigars.

Salvador Corona (1895–1990) was a Mexican-American bullfighter and artist. He was born on his family's ranch Hacienda Mideras in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

By the 19th century, it was common for cigar smokers to have their own cigar boxes to securely keep their cigars fresh and enjoyable. Smaller boxes like this one were usually hand painted to reflect the taste and style of the individual owner. This box may have been decoration for a hacienda, office, or den. Its hand-painted scenes of life in the 19th century southwest show a caballero, farmer, women, a house, and flora and fauna.

The cigar box measures 6 1/2 inches long, 4 1/2 inches wide and has a height of 1 3/4 inches. It weighs 1/4 pound.

This box is an antique, and as such shows wear associated with items of this age. The paint shows flakes on the sides and the bottom, and there are three chips on the right side of the lid. The front of the box is in good condition, with only a few flakes. The hinges are worn, but are perfectly serviceable. The particular wear gives the box and antique look that is highly sought after.

Collectors of Tobacciana, those with a southwestern motif in their home, cantina, or business would find this antique box a great buy.
