Sterling Silver Cigarette Case With Blue Sunburst Enamel Guilloche - A E Poston & Co Ltd 1937

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Artisan Antiques

We are delighted to offer this stunning sunburst light blue enamel and sterling silver cigarette case, made by A E Poston & Co Ltd in Birmingham 1937.
 
 
With practicality, elegance and style combined in one, this cigarette case is the perfect accoutrement for any tobacciana collection or collectors of enamelware.
 
 
The exterior features a wonderful blue guilloche enamel with a very fine starburst/ray pattern.
 
 
The interior is fully silver gilt which provides a layer of protection from the contents inside oxidising/tarnishing the silver.
 
 
The push button clasp still functions very well with an audible 'snap' upon closure, keeping all contents held within safely.
 
 
Whilst originally designed for holding cigarettes, this case could also be used for short-form cigars, holding matches or small items. A perfect gift or addition for the discerning individual and an equally delightful conversation starter.
 
 
A full set of English hallmarks are present on the interior of both sides.
