Art Deco Enamel Cigarette and Match Cases
This must have been a very treasured gift back in the 1930s because it is in near perfect condition except for the normal deterioration of the silk or satin lining of the presentation box. The cigarette case measures 3" x 1 7/8" and opens from the side. The match case is 2 1/4 x 1 3/4" and opens from the bottom. The enamel is turquoise, lined all the way around with black, and is on both the front and the back. The insides of the cases appear to be brass. The presentation case is leather with a silk or satin peach colored lining on the top which has frayed where the case hinges are a bit. The part with the indentations for the cases is velvet and has held up better. The case has two hinges and two brass closures in front. Closed it is 5" x 3 3/4" and it is 3/4" deep. It all is in very fine condition for its age. I bought it from an elderly English lady who said that it had been a present to her husband when he was very young. It is certainly an unusual piece.
