Rare Occupied Japan Wood Bird Dispensing Cigarette Box
- Source: eBay
This is a very neat looking rare and vintage pretty wooden dispensing cigarette box with a bird made in Occupied Japan. It is 3" high x 7" long x 3 1/2" wide and is in excellent condition. You push the little bird down and the cigarette box has a drawer that slides open and the little bird is supposed to pick up the cigarette. The cigarettes are placed in the top of the box by a sliding lid. This has a very pretty wood grain with an inlaid wood look pattern. T is something inside the box that sounds like a small bead or something that won't come out.This was purchased at an estate auction so I don't know it's history but it doesn't look like anything has been broken off or had any repairs or damage that is apparent. It is stamped in black Made in Occupied Japan on the bottom. Very unique addition to a collection and a great gift idea for a tobacco collector. I accept Paypal or money orders as payment. Buyer to pay shipping fees according to zip code.Payment must be received within 10 days of auction's end.
