This was a gift to my grandmother in the 1950s and it was an odd gift for her since she never smoked! It has been in a box in my cousin's house ever since my grandmother passed away in 1961. It is a lovely painted cigarette case and matching lighter in a presentation case all from Stratton of London who did many of the most beautiful compacts and cases. The painting is of roses on a creamy white background. All three of the pieces are in excellent condition, the presentation case, not as good...

This is a lovely item probably from the 1950s. It is cylindricalin shape - about 1 1/4 x 11/2" each way, and it is 3 1/2"long. The metal is gold colored and the top is enameled black with a golden leaf design centered with dark topaz rhinestones. It has all of the wonderful quality of the Kigu of London products like cigarette cases, compacts, etc. were known for. I really don't think the case has ever been used...

This is one of those pretty sweater clips that girls wore with their twin sweaters in the 1950s. One sweater was a pull over, and the other one was a cardigan which was often worn over the shoulders and held in place by a sweater clip. Most were decorative, as this one is. The pearlized heart shaped ends are decorated with flowers, the chain is imitation pearls and the clips are gold colored. It is in very good condition and has no marks.

This is a beautiful, hand painted, artist signed 1920-1930's era cigarette case. The case is hinged,and the front and back are mother-of-pearl, probably celluloid panels, set in silver toned metal. The case features a hand painted flapper girl holding a burning cigarette in her hand, and looking quite confident with her hand on her hip. It is signed by the artist, but the name is hard to make out as part of it is worn off. It looks like Ertios, but I am not sure...

This is a really nice gold toned metal hair piece. The butterfly is enameled, I think, and it is very well done. The butterfly even has two gold toned metal antennae. It measures 2" x 1 1/2" and it is in good condition. The front is nice and shiny, but there is a bit of corrosion on the back where the metal pieces are fastened together. There are no marks.

This is a very rare vintage art deco cigarette case that has a look like mother of pearl. I believe it is made of celluloid with thin wood or metal in between to make it stronger, but it may be totally celluloid. It measures 2 1/8" x 3 3/4." It opens from the top and there is a bit of wear near the hinges. The flapper is painted on both sides, and there are three green rhinestones on her necklace, and a red one on the tip of her cigarette...

I have never seen another combination case quite like this one. It is enameled in a delicate peach color with white and chrome trim in a very art deco design. It is 5 3/4" x 2 1/4" and the longer side is for cigarettes, and the shorter one is a compact that still has powder and a mirror, but no powder puff. Both sides are hinged, and the piece is thin, I suppose so that it would fit into a lady's purse. It was found in an old chamois leather case that may or may not be original to the piece...

This is a very unusual piece from the Art Deco Period when everyone used a compact. This one is made to look like a decorated envelope in black enameling and gold toned metal. The seal is a mother of pearl half button. The compact is not large - it is 2 3/4" x 1 1/2". The inside is in excellent condition - still has the little puff, but no powder and the silvering on the mirror has a few small blotches such as one would expect with something this old. It has no marks of origin.
