This silver and enamel cigarette case has a subtly curved form proffering a comfortable fit in the majority of pockets.

The enamel scene is signed to the lower corner with the initials 'CF'.
The rounded sides and posterior cover of this cigarette case are plain and unembellished.
This case is fitted with a push fit catch, which when released reveals two hinged compartments.
This impressive example of Victorian silverware retains the original gilt interior.
