AVERY ART & ANTIQUES
This attractive tobacco bottle from French Camaroon, circa 1920, is carved from fine boxwood with the likeness if a Legionnaire in his visored cap, which still bears much of its ebonizing. The bottle opens with a simple screw-cap, and a boxwood spoon is attached by a leather thong through the figure’s neck. Around 5-1/2 inches tall and 1-1/4 inches wide.
