Art Deco Mechanical Cigarette Box

A mechanical cigarette dispenser from the Art Deco Era. The box is made of wood, the lid is painted bright fire-engine red with an absolutely darling Bakelite pull top for opening the box. The red bakelite is bordered with tin. The lower exterior of the box is covered with a metallic silver and gold foil material. On front is a red silhouette Penguin (wood) with his (hers) beak lifting towards the sky.

Open this vintage cutie and up lifts the smoke of your choice measuring up to 3-1/8". The interior is metal, another sheet metal lid lifts up so the two compartments within can be filled with cigarettes. All hinges are in perfect working condition.

The exterior back side has darling hinges with an Art Deco geometrical flare, different than other ol' hinges I have seen. Beneath are four footed felt pads which have protected the underside from normal wear and tear.

Size: 4" square x 5" tall and with the Bakelite pull tab 6-1/4"

Condition: Pristine! The Penguin has some paint loss and is crazed from days gone by.

Item ID: TC49
