In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, cigarette cases were a popular accessory, reflecting the changing social dynamics and attitudes towards smoking. As tobacco became more widely consumed, especially after the introduction of commercially rolled cigarettes, these cases provided a convenient and stylish way to carry and protect cigarettes. Some cases even featured compartments for matches or lighter storage.
This elegant accessory exudes a timeless charm, while the silver composition ensures not only a striking appearance but also a durable and lasting accessory. The front features an engine turned striped design, with an 'RG' monogram to the top right.
The case is hallmarked Sterling to the inside arm, with the initials SMC for the makers.
Good condition with dents.
