This vintage Russian sterling & niello cigarette case dates from the 19th century. The niello case has a square geometric design with an oval shield without monogram. The case has a push button mechanism for opening. An interior rim bears two vague Russian punch marks. One with the initials R N, while the other displays a profiled head within an octagon punch. There are condition issues: the case does not close tightly, gaps are visible & seen in the photos. Also, surface niello is worn away here & there.
3.5" long X 2.25" wide X 3/4" deep
