Stunning Early 20th Century Gold Plated Cigarette Case, with Border Collie Central Panel.
I have for sale an Early 20th Century Gold Plated Cigarette Case, with Border Collie Central Panel.
It is a lovely item, simplistic in its presentation but very effective. It is a great items for Cigarette Case Collectors or for Dog Memorabilia collectors.
Condition wise, the case is very good. It was dirty when I bought it so I have given it a gentle clean and the gold looks fantastic. There are some marks to it, but being 100 year old or so there is no major scratches or damage to the case. Unfortunately the dog panel has some damage, water damage I believe, but it's not damaged enough so you can't appreciate the picture. The Border Collie is very well done, she (i'm presuming!) looks wonderful, it's really well done.
Another bonus, condition wise, is the opening mechanism works perfectly. Very easy to press to open, but is solidly closed when you close it. The original elastic holder, that would keep the Cigarettes in the holder is still there, a really nice aspect, though the elastic is a bit worn. Not looks-wise, but stretch wise.
It measures just over 9cm long, 6.5cm wide and 1.5cm deep. The Border Collie panel is approx. 4.5cm in diameter. All in all it's a lovely piece.
I'm happy to post internationally, just ask me for a quote for postage for your country.
