This is an exquisite piece from Unger Brothers that has catered to Art Nouveau connoisseurs in America from 1872-1910. The firm advertised as manufacturing jewelers, silversmiths, and glass cutters. They had both a factory and salesroom located in Newark, NJ.
This magnificent cigarette case with its elaborate execution which is a great illustration of the Unger Brothers craftsmanship, has a nice patina finish and a metaphorical design of a nude woman playing harp in a sunset sea landscape.
This case has a classic form with soft rounded corners and gilt interior design.
The cover of the case closes tight and the interior guard is present and in good shape.
This beautiful piece is fine sterling silver, in great condition with a superb craftsmanship.
This rare stunning vintage silver cigarette case measures 85 mm x 65 mm x 7mm and weighs 68 grams.
