Hello and thank you for stopping by....Today I am offering an ANTIQUE WOODEN CIGARETTE CASE WITH MUSIC BOX. This piece was purchased in Japan before World War II. Open the top to reveal storage for 20 cigarettes. Under this space is an area that houses some old lights that I believe used to light up when the music box plays, but they no longer work. The shorter side is for matches, and t is also 2 small lightbulbs underneath that do not appear to work. The top of the taller side looks like it has an inlaid wood pattern in the middle in an art deco style. The front features an open scrolling pattern carved into the wood. T is some kind of clear plastic or lucite behind the scrollwork. The taller side also has a wooden owl attached to the front. T is a small drawer on the back to hold the used matches. Music box plays a well-known Japanese tune. It is marked on the bottom with Japanese characters and the word PATENT (the N is backwards though.) In very good condition, with only minor scuffs in the wood. Measures about 8.5" long, 6.25" tall, and 4.75" wide.

SHIPPING RATES : are a calculated rate, based on weight and zip code, and include delivery confirmation and a small handling charge (usually no more than 25-50 cents).

INSURANCE : optional but highly recommended, the post office has already damaged/lost a couple of my packages. I can't be held responsible for damages/loss caused by USPS.
REFUNDS : Only given if I have seriously misrepresented an item in my description. I do my best to be honest and accurate but I'm human and sometimes make mistakes. Depending on the item and situation I may or may not ask you to return it. Shipping charges are not refundable, once the USPS has our money t's no way to get it back. If you have a problem with your item PLEASE email me before leaving feedback, I will do my best to come to a mutual agreement that makes us both happy.
EMAILING ME : The best way to contact me is by clicking on my username, then clicking on "contact me" and sending a message through ebay. I check my messages on ebay frequently, but because of spam your message may get misplaced if you send it directly to my email address.

COMBINED SHIPPING : I offer shipping discounts for each subsequent purchase, please email me if you need a quote.
SHIPPING TIMES : I usually ship within 3 days of receiving and clearing payment but sometimes real life interferes and t are delays. I ship most things via Priority Mail, however on the heavier items, or books I will let the buyer choose the shipping service they wish to use. Priority Mail can take up to 3 days, and Parcel post and media mail can take up to 14 business days. Sometimes USPS is slower than expected due to any number of reasons.

LAST LIL THING : Seller reserves the right to cancel any bids from users with negative feedback for non-payment. I probably won't - but I feel it should be said just in case any problems arise.
