This is probably a more specialist item for the collector of novelty cigarette cases.

This lovely case dates to the 1950s and was made by Mascot - who also made powder compact.

It is in lovely vintage condition, as you can see in my images.

The case closes with a little catch which is nice and secure.

The interior has op-art gold swirls of engine turned decoration which almost moves about when you swivel the case about.

There is the original metal band inside to keep your cigarettes in place - and it is inscribed Mascot.

The base has raised parallel lines as a decorative touch. Inside and out, the gold is all nice and shiny.

The lid is matt gold-tone colour onto which we have the original painted image.

The image shows two girls one carrying a parasol walking down a French street. It is a hot summer's day and a big fireball of a golden sun is shown in the sky.

It is certainly in the most excellent condition, with an original felt case and original card box - this is reflected in my asking price for this very attractive little case.

Sadly - being an older cigarette case - it will no longer hold more modern king-size cigarettes - and also a tad too small to function as a business card case (unless to trim the edges of your cards just a little). 

External dimensions are three inches square.

So probably an item to add to a specialist's collection.
