Birmingham 1933 Art Deco Sterling & Guilloche Enamel Compact Cigarette Card Case For Sale
Birmingham 1933 Art Deco Sterling & Guilloche Enamel Compact Cigarette Card Case
Up for offer is a very fine sterling silver and guilloche enamel cigarette or card case hallmarked for Birmingham 1933. I don't recognize the maker's mark, but if you do, please let me know. This lovely piece measures about 3 and 1/4 inches by about 2 and 3/4 inches. The front features a fabulous art deco design in blue guilloche enamel, and the back is textured silver. The compact opens with a push tab to a gold-washed interior. One side has a pair of thin gold springs to act as a holder. Since this case is quite thin (only a little more than 1/4 inch high), I'm not sure whether it was intended to hold cigarettes, cards, or something else. The inside is hallmarked on each side. Overall condition is excellent, with no damage noted. Just an outstanding piece for your collection!
Domestic shipping will be $3.00 first-class or $5.15 priority, your choice. International shipping at cost. Thanks for looking, and check out the other great sterling silver items I have listed. Always happy to combine shipping!
