Delightful cigarette dispenser made in Japan, 1940's. This wooden cigarette dispenser features inlay design on the cigarette box lid and hand painting bird that plucks cigarettes from the dispenser. This mechanical device works by pushing the side lever and the bird tips forward on the roller, which opens the drawer at the bottom of the box. This was designed to take "short" cigarettes such as Camel's or Lucky Strikes, as filter cigarettes were not marketed until the 1950's. Overall dimensions of this little treasure is 7 3/4" long x 3 5/8" x 3 3/8" high. It's in fine working condition with some wear where the drawer opens. This is a great display piece sure to delight the tobacciana collector.
