Fabulous, all original, antique Victorian, metal cigarette dispenser that has not been cleaned, repainted, or had any of the glass jewels replaced. It is in perfect working order. The hinges are intact, and the lever works smoothly. There are no marks, that I can see, but in doing some research, I found the exact piece, and it stated that on the inside is, "11621 MFD by The Art Metal Works Newark NJ USA Pat Pend.". As you can see in the photos, there is a lot of green, verdigris on the inside of the lid, so perhaps that's where the mark is. The heavy, square base measures 5 inches by 5 inches. The overall height is 4&1/2 inches. It weighs almost 2 pounds, before packing. Circa 1850-1890.
