This delightful, Art Nouveau cigarette/card case came to me from France. It tests as 800-900 silver quality and bears two hallmarks that I can’t identify, possibly Provincial marks. It carries a delightful design of mistletoe.
The box measures 3 and 5/16” (8.3cms) by 2½” (6.5cms) across. It is ½” (1.3cms) thick and weighs 48 grams.
Both sides are gently curved and are decorated with a bold , repoussé design of mistletoe, a favourite Art Nouveau motif.
A catch on one edge is depressed top open the case. The interior is richly gilded and the original elastic straps are in place. It closes with a click.
The hallmarks referred to above are on outer edges.
In excellent antique condition , this most charming box will arrive carefully presented and protected.
