This fine antique silver and enamel cigarette case has a rectangular form with rounded corners.

This Austro-Hungarian cigarette case has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets.

The front cover is embellished with an enamel panel depicting a nude female character playing a harp on a grass terrain, with a broad panel of interlacing decoration to one side, all in the iconic Art Nouveau style.

The sides of this cigarette case and posterior cover are plain and unembellished.

The case is fitted with a hallmarked push fit catch which when released reveals two gilded hinged compartments.

The hallmarks to the interior of this impressive case include:
Silver quality/purity: 900, Dianakopf mark* (900 standard, 900/1000)
Maker's mark: MZ

* This variation of the Dianakopf mark was used from 1867-1922, determining the date of this piece as circa 1900.
