Art Deco Trinket/Cigarette Box, circa 1920-40 SOLD

This is the first time I have come across an art deco trinket/cigarette box like this one. I love the stylized design of the  antelope and how the metal has tarnished with age.  Unfortunately the hinges have long gone but the edge where the hinges once were positioned, is clean and the damage is not noticeable.  The box is heavy and   lined with timber.
Dimensions:  height:4,5cm      width: 10,5cm      depth: 9cm
Condition: view photos

  1. Such an stylish selection you have! Awesome information. I never used either, but I lately came across a magnificently handmade smoke situation, of a much later classic than yours are, and was influenced to buy it.Thank you for telling this to us! Cigarette Case
