Victorian Antique Lorillard Tobacco Cabinet
Not something that you’d hang above your Rococo or Aesthetic Movement sofa, but here’s a great 1880s Victorian tobacco cabinet from the Lorilard Tobacco Company, which operated 100 years prior to this cabinet’s creation as well as operates even to this day. Lorillard was founded in 1760 by entrepreneur Pierre Lorillard and was the first tobacco company in New York City. It is the oldest continuously operating tobacco company in the United States today.
The cabinet will be sold in the upcoming February 6th Pook & Pook sale in Downingtown, PA and is estimated to fetch $3,000 to $5,000. More at the lot description page.
I am assuming it is one and the same as this cabinet, currently listed in Ebay stores.
