Vintage cigarette case - stamped:
NIVOIS CIGARETTE CASE, P.LORILLARD CO. OWNER, PAT. APPLIED FOR 59437, I.W.C CO.
It is a gold tone or brass finish with a stamped-etched Diamond pattern on both top and bottom outer covers.
It certainly shows the attention to details and quality of an International Watch Company creation.
I am not sure of the metal content of this case.
Except for the markings indicated above, it is not otherwise marked.
It looks like real gold, gold plate or gold wash finish. A magnet does not stick to it.
I'm sure a polish on the outside will shine up as brightly and nicely as the inside.
The case measures: 4-7/8" long x 2-7/8" wide x 3/8" thick when closed.
Inside there is a spring hinged 10 slot cigarette pocket.
It closes with a full hinge down the backside and a button-snap lock closure on the front.
There are some slight-light surface wear marks on the outside of the case,
but inside it looks to be in excellent barely if ever or extremely gently used excellent vintage condition.
I am not original owner, expert or collector of these type items, so Please look at all the photos as they are part of the description and ask any specific questions or request additional photos. Sold as found,
