This case measures 3 1/8” by 1 ¾”. It has guilloche enamel with small pink roses and green leaves, with fine lines of engine- turning designs on the back. There is also black enamel decorative scroll work. The inside has the elastic piece on one side. It also has the markings 13 TAO (I think) 900 and 3 hallmarks ( I think). It is very hard to read. The clasp is in great working order and click closed with a crisp “click”. Under that piece are also two markings, that look like hallmarks. Please take a look at the pictures! I believe this case is English or made in England. It is in need of a good cleaning, but other than that it’s in good condition.

This little baby can't hold today's size cigarettes, but it sure is neat! It's brass and glass era, 20's. It measures 3" by 2 1/4". It is probably from Austria. The case has embossed brass with an overlay of very decorative stamped brass with amber colored rhinestones! Notice the large one in the middle, it is in great shape.
