Ben Bey Cigars     

Ben Bey Cigar containers are recognized for their grace and of the most striking cigar box designs ever produced, some say.  The image of a Mideast "sheik" on horseback in full gallop, brandishing a raised rifle, has captured the imagination of countless people over the years.   A multitude of containers in tin, wood, cardboard, and plastic were produced.   The core design remained similar throughout all of its years of production.  All of the cigar boxes in the gallery below, arranged in roughly chronological order, differ from one another.
