Antique Sterling Silver Curved Cigarette Case W/ 1936 Illust. Message. 4.4 T. Oz:
A marvelous old Sterling Silver cigarette case with a great, 1936 hand-inscribed personal message inside and an elephant drawing. I reckon the people involved were in a place that has elephants. Maybe some government foreign service personnel. Very exotic. Intriguing. The case is curved to fit the contour of the clothing. The case is in almost perfect, used condition, EXCEPT ... the back is slightly wavy in 3 places and the original rubber keeper is in bad condition. The latch and the hinge are good. The case has not been cleaned and there is tarnish. The case measures about 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches. It weighs 137.7 grams, 4.42 troy ounces of British Sterling Silver. Birmingham British Provenance is clearly stamped on both sides of the case.
