Unusual Antique Sterling Silver Cigarette Case
This item is an unusual antique sterling silver cigarette case which has three sections and incorporates a vesta case with a striker. There is engraving on the front side dated 1887 when it was obviously given as a present.
The elastic retaining straps have lost their tension and will require replacing if the case is to be used for its original purpose.
There are a few small dinks (which are very minor) but overall this is an interesting example.
The case measures 140 mm wide by 80 mm deep when closed.
