This is a beautiful, wooden, Russian, Cigarette Case, circa 1910. The English dealer from whom I bought it listed the type of wood on my receipt, but I can't read his writing! This case would fit in a gentleman's pocket. It measures 4 inches East to West, and 2 and 1/2 inches North to South. It opens and there is a place to store the cigarettes. An unusual feature of this case is that it has a vesta with a striker on the bottom; that is, the bottom opens, and one can store matches inside. There is also a twisted piece of ribbon, pictured, that slips down inside the case, and is connected by a brass knob. I'm sure one of our Ruby Lane collectors can tell me what that is for. Anyway, this is a beautiful box, and it has absolutely no damage, or scratches at all. It is very unusual.
