Presented is a wonderful antique cigarette case from MARATHON U.S.A. with a patent date of 1912. This cigarette case is made of metal and the lid shuts tight. On the front is a blank cartouche against a striped pattern and on the back side it's plain. Stamped into the bottom, within a diamond shape, is "MARATHON" and next to that it is stamped "PAT. 1912". Please note some minor handling wear and a few very small dents primarily on the corners. This is to be expected from of piece of this vintage.
Actual measurements are 3" tall, when closed, and 2 3/8" wide. A nice old piece to add to any collection. Please call or e-mail us with any questions.
