This is a pretty and unique 1940's vintage gold tone Elgin American cigarette case in lovely condition.
The lid is beautifully etched with an intricate and unusual pattern.
There are no dents, dings, rust or corrosion on this wonderful case, and it measures 3 7/8 inches in length by 3 inches in width. Any dark areas on the front of the case are reflections, and not damage.
The back does have some very minor light scuffing and tarnish, but nothing that detracts from the beauty of this piece.
The case is large enough to hold regular filtered cigarettes going the length of the case, but was originally designed to hold non filtered cigarettes going in the opposite direction.
It is hallmarked on the interior clips with "Elgin American Made In U.S.A.".
This case would also work nicely for business cards, credit cards or cash.
The hinges and clasp are in perfect working condition.
