It is a beautiful Art Deco object, and made with complete attention to detail. You would hold it upside down leaving a gap through which you would half fill with cigarettes. Invert, then each time you wanted a cig. You lift the box slightly, then push down. A cigarette would drop onto the grooved timber and be lifted to the surface.The box part is hollow, and lifts up. The section at the top is grooved out, so a cylindrical object such as a cigarette could rest there. It is certainly something that will get people talking! Don't miss out on this rare opportunity, to own this beautiful, and very unusual decorative piece from another era. I will be listing many more collectable, vintage, antique, Art Deco items in the coming weeks, so be sure to add me to your favourites list. Check out my other items.
