Art Deco Metal Cigarette Box with Faux Wood Design
Not dissimilar to the shape of a World War One tank, this great little Art Deco cigarette box in metal with hinged lid, features a faux wood effect in two tones and typical geometrical designs. Most likely made for the Squirrel brand of cigarettes, this is an unusual and eye-catching item.
In good overall condition and structurally solid, the box could certainly perform a new role. There is some slight pitting to the top surface and some general signs of age and use throughout, but otherwise the box is clean and cosmetically good, with very little fading to the colours (as is often the case with boxes of this type).
The box measures 9 cm wide by 12 cms deep by 6.5 cm high (3½ in. by 4½ in. by 2½ in.)
SORRY, SOLD OUT!
