Art Deco Samuel Levi Solid Silver Engine Turned Cigarette Case Birmingham 1934 (Code 1612)
An Art Deco silver cigarette case by the much collected Samuel M Levi of Birmingham. It has the hallmark for Birmingham 1934 placing this piece just before the outbreak of WWII and during the Art Deco period. It is of rectangular form with slighted canted corners and the case is bowed to make it more comfortable in the pocket. The faces are engine turned which not only gives a stylish finish but helps hide finger prints etc for items which are in regular use, there is also a blank panel for an inscription. The interior is gilded and there are the original elastics although these are rather perished. Originally this would have been for slim cigarettes, today they are more used for business cards or similar.
Normal period wear with minor scuffs and scratches as normal, some indents around the edges. Interior elastics worn and perished. Hinge and latch fine.
