A fantastic and very rare Chinese Export Solid Sterling Silver cigarette case decorated with an engraved dragon and a view of the world famous Bund in Shanghai highlighted with gold plate. The Bund appears as if in a cloud and the word "Shanghai" is written above.

Both the dragon and the buildings of the Bund are picked out with two different colours of gold. This really is a very striking, and extremely rare piece.

The background of the case has an attractive frosted finish.

The case is marked STERLING on the inside along with an unidentified makers mark in Chinese.


Dimensions: 5 3/8 inches x 3 1/8 inches
Weight: Weight 148 grams

Condition: Excellent condition.
Date: Early 1900s

The case is in excellent condition, with no dents or deep scratches. The case opens and closes perfectly, and the clasp is perfect.

This is a very fine Chinese export cigarette case that would make a great addition to any collection.
