Circa 1900. Not often found Art Nouveau lady motif in a cheroot or cigar leather case. The lady is holding up a lily over her head and does not have the usual flowing hair, but what appears to be a bob with a fringe? So is that Art Deco? Early 20's? She is not quite nude, though her pelvic region is rather defined, but wearing a scoop neck, cap sleeve, long dress that hugs then flows around her feet. Where are the bosoms? Much confusion here.
Still tres Art Nouveau era. Both sections in place: 4 3/4" X 3 1/2".
Although it many not be the finest leather, there is plenty of rich, shiny patina where it should be with the appearance of having been used and enjoyed for many years. It needs conditioning as there are some dry areas. Pre owned antique condition. bo-p-f-a
