The intricate work put into everyday objects is one of the allures of collecting antiques and vintage items. So it is with this delightful cigarette dispenser made in Occupied Japan, 1940's. This wooden cigarette dispenser features marquetry inlay all around with hand painting on the cigarette box lid and on the bird that plucks cigarettes from the dispenser. This mechanical device works by pushing the bird's tail forward on the roller, which opens the drawer at the bottom of the box. This was designed to take "short" cigarettes such as Camel's or Lucky Strikes, as filter cigarettes were not marketed until the 1950's. Overall dimensions of this little treasures are 6" x 3 5/8" x 3 3/4" high. It's in fine working condition with some chipping to the marquetry as can be seen in the photos. This is a great display piece sure to delight the tobacciana collector. Free US shipping via US Priority Mail.
