This beautiful cloisonné cigarette case, dating to the early 1900s, features a pattern of fans with various decorations. The colors are rust red, turquoise, green and black with a bit of blue and pink in the fan decorations. It hinges open and closes with a latch. Pressing the little knob in front will open the case. The metal is finished with a rough texture inside. Both sides have a strip of elastic stretching across to hold the cigarettes in.
SIZE: The case measures 3 3/8 by 3 1/4 inches. It is almost 1/2 inch deep.
CONDITION: We believe this case fell at some point, causing the top to not fit exactly true to the bottom. The latch still works well. There are a few small spots of missing enamel on the corners and a few small pits on the top surface. Overall, the enamel on the top and bottom is in very good condition. The designs are vibrant and beautiful.
