Fantastic quality. An antique silver cigarette case with intricate basket weave decoration. The engraved niello band has some Russian letters in cyrilic writing on one side and to the other side there is a central cartouche in the form of a seal with engraved initials and a crest. Operated with a push button, the mechanism works well and the interior is gilded. Weight 128 grams, 4.1 troy ounces. Height 2.5 cms. Box measures 10 x 5.5 cms. Marked inside in the top and bottom with Russian silver marks and the date 1875.
This lovely Russian box is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. Lovely crisp original decoration. No wear to the gilding. Clear marks which are easy to read.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
