This is just so typical of the Deco designs at this time. The dispenser measures 3 3/8 inches in length and stands 2 1/2 high. There is a crack on one corner. Made for the "short" cigarettes produced at that time it is a fabulous example of the period. You fill the middle with ciggies and when you felt like a "smoke" picked it up and merely turned it over and there was your "fag" waiting for your pleasure ! Simple but ingenuous !
